# Clone the repository.
$ git clone https://github.com/naver/billboard.js.git

2. Install dependencies

  • doc folder: Includes API documentation. The home page for the documentation is doc/index.html.

Linting

To keep the same code style, we adopted ESLint to maintain our code quality. The rules are modified version based on Airbnb JavaScript Style Guide. Setup your editor for check or run below command for linting.

$ npm run lint

Test

Once you created a branch and done with development, you must perform a test running npm test command before you push code to a remote repository.

$ npm test

Running a npm test command will start Mocha tests via Karma-runner.
