Workflow

Setup

  1. Get Node.js version 14 or greater
  2. Clone this repository with git
  3. Run npm install to install the dependencies

Develop

First, make sure that everything in your development environment is working by running:

npm run build

This should create files in the dist/css, dist/js, and public directories. Once you've confirmed that it's working, you can run one or both of the following:

  • npm run watch watches the source files and rebuilds the CSS and JavaScript bundles when they change
  • npm run develop starts the Docusaurus server, which includes some helpful reloading and debugging features
