Closure Library Build Status

This is Medium's fork of the Google Closure Library.

We try to keep it reasonably up to date, but only after testing that it is compatible with our products. There may occasionally be changes introduced to work around temporary issues or to try out fixes in preparation of upstream patches.

The package number reflects the date that we last merged the fork. We rebase our changes on top of origin/master, so that our modifications are always on top of the closure-library master changes.



NPM Info

The repository contains a lot of test files and demos, as such we include a postinstall script that removes these files from the node_modules directory when installed via NPM.


This project isn't intended for external contribution, we suggest instead you send patches directly.
