A few steps how to start contributing:

1.Fork X-editable and pull the latest changes from dev branch

2.Arrange local directory structure. It should be:
| -- lib (repo related to dev and master branches)
| -- gh-pages (repo related to gh-pages branch for docs & demo)
| -- playground (simple node-server and html page for testing,

To make it easy follow this script ( assuming you have nodejs installed ). Please replace <your-github-name> with your name:

mkdir x-editable
cd x-editable

git clone<your-github-name>/x-editable.git -b dev lib
cd lib
#install gruntjs globally - building tool
npm install -g grunt 
#install other dependencies - grunt-contrib
npm install 
cd ..

git clone<your-github-name>/x-editable.git -b gh-pages gh-pages
cd gh-pages
npm install 
cd ..

#download from
cd playground
npm install 

3.That's it! You can start editing files in lib/src directory or create new editable input/container/whatever.
To test the result go to playground, start server node server.js and open in your browser http://localhost:3000/playground.

4.To run unit tests you can open it directly in browser lib/test/index.html.
Or use grunt's qunit task grunt test. For that you also need to install PhantomJS

5.To build lib + docs:

  • run grunt build in lib directory
  • run build data-docs-dist in gh-pages directory
    You will get distributive in lib/dist and updated docs in gh-pages/*.html.
    Do not edit index.html and docs.html directly! Instead look at Handlebars templates in generator/templates.

6.Commit changes on dev branch and make pull request as usual.

Thanks for your support!
