    How to build

    Source code is divided into class files (dev/src/*.js). These files include multi-language comments. You can build enchant.js with 'grunt' command from these files. If you want to send a pull request or join development enchant.js, please edit files under dev/src, use this build tool and commit the built work tree.

    To setup grunt.js (build tool for node.js) as npm package, type:

    npm install -g grunt-cli
    npm install
    

    You additionally need phantomjs to run qunit test in grunt.js.

    Build Tasks

    • grunt do default tasks (jshint concat uglify qunit exec:lang)
    • grunt watch watch dev/src/*.js and exec grunt concat uglify lang when something is modified
    • grunt jshint check sourcecode in dev/classes/*.js with jshint
    • grunt concat generate dev/enchant.js from dev/classes/*.js
    • grunt uglify generate enchant.min.js from dev/enchant.js
    • grunt exec:lang generate enchant.js (English comment only) from dev/enchant.js
    • grunt qunit do qunit tests with phantomjs (headless browser)
    • grunt mocha do mocha tests with phantomjs (headless browser)

    If you wish to send your codes to github repos, don't forget to run grunt command before you commit your change!
