Please visit the website for details about installation and usage.
Distribution files are in the
Source code is kept in the
src/ directory. After any source code
modifications it will be necessary to run the grunt build task to
rebuild the source and run unit tests.
First install grunt.
Next install dev dependencies:
$ npm install
then run grunt
The default grunt task will create a
_working/ directory with the
PhysicsJS development build. You can play around with that.
_working/ directory won't be committed
(it is in .gitignore).
After you run this you can use (Mr.doob's) htmleditor in
editor/ to play around.
If you want grunt to automatically create the development build
when you modify the source in
src/ then run:
$ grunt watch
Note grunt watch won't run unit tests.
If you are contributing a bug-fix or a very minor addition, feel free to do a pull request on the master branch.
If it is something else create a new (or existing) feature branch (eg:
and issue a pull request on that.
If unsure, create an issue to discuss.
Please ensure that:
- the files in
- the features you add are well documented with jsdoc comments if applicable.
- the code is indented with 4 space characters.
