For better debugging, it's also recommended you add
define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true ); to your wp-config. This will load the unminified version of all libraries, and specifically the development build of React.
After cloning the repo, install dependencies with
npm install. Now you can build the files using one of these commands:
npm run build: Build a production version
npm run dev: Build a development version
npm start: Build a development version, watch files for changes
npm run build:release: Build a WordPress plugin ZIP file (
woocommerce-admin.zipwill be created in the repository root)
There are also some helper scripts:
npm run i18n: A multi-step process, used to create a pot file from both the JS and PHP gettext calls. First it runs
i18n:js, which creates a temporary
.potfile from the JS files. Next it runs
i18n:php, which converts that
.potfile to a PHP file. Lastly, it runs
i18n:pot, which creates the final
.potfile from all the PHP files in the plugin (including the generated one with the JS strings).
npm test: Run the JS test suite
To debug synced lookup information in the database, you can bypass the action scheduler and immediately sync order and customer information by using the
add_filter( 'woocommerce_disable_order_scheduling', '__return_true' );
If you have enabled WooCommerce usage tracking ( option
woocommerce_allow_tracking ) then, in addition to the tracking described in https://woocommerce.com/usage-tracking/, this plugin also sends information about the actions that site administrators perform to Automattic - see https://automattic.com/privacy/#information-we-collect-automatically for more information.
