This is the compilation repository for Processing.js, building the processing.js library from a series of modules, rather than existing as one large file as was the case in version 1.4.1 and earlier.
Simply grab the
processing.min.js files, include them as script on your webpage, and you're all set. See
test.html for a simple example of using Processing.js on your pages.
Clone this project using git, and ensure you have node.js installed. After cloning, install the require node packages using
npm install in the processing-js directory. Modifying the code and building your own
processing.min.js files is then a fairly straight forward process. Modify the code as much as you want or need, then:
$> node test
If step 1 gives you a "grunt: command not found" or similar error, run
npm install -g grunt-cli to make sure grunt is globally installed as CLI command. If step 1 does not throw any errors, step 2 will run the Processing object through a battery of tests. Once the browser reference tests start, your
processing.min.js have been successfully built.
The test script also accepts the following optional arguments:
--test=testfile.pderuns one specific test
--nobuilddoes not build Pjs if all tests pass
--failonerrorterminates the run if any error occurs.
--norefwill not start a server process and a browser for doing ref testing.
--noautorefwill start a server and a browser for ref testing, but doesn't auto-start the tests.
You can also perform the post-unit-test steps manually:
- Build processing.js:
$> browserify build.js -o processing.js
- Minify processing.js:
$> node minify
- Run test server:
$> node server
With the test server is running, the following urls are good to know:
- http://localhost:3000 - vanilla example page
- http://localhost:3000/ref - reference testing page
- http://localhost:3000/perf - performance testing page
- http://localhost:3000/processing-helper.html - utility page for converting/running Processing code
