To start off, this repo (along with others in the @polkadot family) uses yarn workspaces to organise the code. As such, after cloning, its dependencies should be installed via yarn, not via npm; the latter will result in broken dependencies.

To get started -

  1. Clone the repo locally, via git clone https://github.com/polkadot-js/common <optional local path>
  2. Ensure that you have a recent version of Node.js, for development purposes Node 10 is recommended.
  3. Ensure that you have a recent version of Yarn, for development purposes Yarn >=1.10.1 is required.
  4. Install the dependencies by running yarn
  5. Build the everything via yarn run build
  6. You can also launch the API Docs, via yarn vuepress dev docs
  7. Access the docs via http://localhost:8080
