Update documented commands needed to run tests #42

merged 1 commit into from

I was following the instructions to run the tests and make test gave me this: make: Nothing to be done for test.

I was able to run the tests using

git submodule update --init
npm install
npm test

so I assume the readme is just needs an update.
