We welcome pull requests! Some things to keep in mind:

Set up

Assuming that Ruby is already installed on your machine, you need to install bundler gem to install other required gems so that you can run the test server.

$ cd test
$ gem install bundler

Once bundler is installed, run bundle install which install required gems (mostly sinatra)

$ bundle install
Fetching source index for
Using rack (1.4.1)
Installing rack-contrib (1.1.0)
Using rack-protection (1.2.0)
Using tilt (1.3.3)
Using sinatra (1.3.2)
Using bundler (1.0.21)

Once all the required gems are installed, run the following command

$ rackup
>>> Serving: ~/dataset/test/../
>> Thin web server (v1.3.1 codename Triple Espresso)
>> Maximum connections set to 1024
>> Listening on, CTRL+C to stop

Open the test page on the browser

open http://localhost:9292/test/index.html


  • Any new functionality must have tests and ensure all current tests still pass. All tests are located in the test/unit directory.
  • We use cowboy's grunt library to build all our final dependencies. You will need to install grunt per the instructions here: Dataset uses grunt 0.4.
