    Getting started

    GitGraph.js codebase is a monorepo. Packages are released under @gitgraph/* scope.

    As a user, you're probably interested in one of the rendering libraries:

    You'll find usage details in their README.

    As a contributor, you might be interested in checking out gitgraph-core. It contains the core logic for rendering libraries to use.

    Running the project locally


    Setting things up:

    1. Clone the repository: git clone
    2. Install dependencies: yarn install
    3. Bootstrap the project: yarn run lerna bootstrap

    Lerna will install dependencies of all packages and links any cross-dependencies.

    Available root-level commands are detailed in package.json. You would usually need:

    • yarn test to run Jest unit tests (yarn test --watch for watch mode)
    • yarn develop to start Storybook, watching for changes of all packages

    You can also go to specific packages and run available commands detailed in their package.json. For example, you could cd packages/gitgraph-core/ and run yarn test --watch to only run tests of this package.

    But root-level commands are more convenient!
