The JavaScript files located at admin/src get transpiled, tree-shaken and bundled together (via Rollup or Browserify) into admin/js.

The SCSS files located at admin/scss get processed into CSS located at admin/css.

We use Gulp and npm for all development and build tasks. So, to get started run the following commands from a terminal:

  • First, npm install
  • To compile everything in dev mode, run npm run dev
  • To compile everything in production mode, run npm run production
  • To compile everything in distribution (release) mode, run npm run distribution
  • After you have compiled the JS and SCSS, if you want to generate a .zip file of the WordPress plugin ready to install, run the gulp zip command.

That is it. If you have suggestions or even PR, don't hesitate.
