Rebuild content locally for testing

This project uses Grunt to compile and run build tasks on a watch task. In order to test scripts and the like locally you will need to do the following:

  • Run npm install in the project root to retrieve the required frameworks to run a local build.
  • Run npm run-script bower install in the project root to install JS and less dependencies.
  • Run npm run-script grunt to start Grunt watching the folder
  • Make your local changes to the JS/less files to trigger grunt to build
  • Open index.html from the root of the project. Some minor tweaks may need to be done to run this file locally without a web server (such as adding https: to the front of the main.min.js script source attribute at the bottom of the page). These changes should stay local and not be pushed up with your script changes.
