Quick Start (for local development and testing)
# Install all dependencies yarn install # Create symbolic link yarn link # Build library in watch mode yarn build:watch
In your project folder that should consume the library:
# Go to consumer repository folder cd case-management-web # Link you library to the project yarn link "@hmcts/ccd-case-ui-toolkit" yarn start
Note: The linking might be broken so if your encounter problems please follow this process:
# Install all dependencies yarn install # Build library in watch mode yarn build:watch
In you project folder that should consume the library:
# Go to consumer repository folder cd case-management-web # Remove existing toolkit dist rm -rf node_modules/\@hmcts/ccd-case-ui-toolkit/dist # Link you library to the project cp <location of ccd-case-ui-toolkit>/dist node_modules/\@hmcts/ccd-case-ui-toolkit yarn start
You can also have a quick look at an example usage of the UI Toolkit demo project (after both folders had
yarn install ran on them) by:
# Build the toolkit and fire up the demo application to view it yarn demo
Broken down into individual steps, this does the following:
# build UI Toolkit yarn build:esm # copy UI Toolkit dist folder to demo/node_modules/@hmcts/ccd-case-ui-toolkit/dist yarn build:demo # start demo app and stub server in same process yarn start # Go to http://localhost:8080

Build the library
yarn buildfor building the library once (both ESM and AOT versions).
yarn build:watchfor building the library (both ESM and AOT versions) and watch for file changes.
You may also build UMD bundle and ESM files separately:
yarn build:esm- for building AOT/JIT compatible versions of files.
yarn build:esm:watch- the same as previous command but in watch-mode.
yarn build:umd- for building UMD bundle only.
yarn build:umd:watch- the same as previous command but in watch-mode.
Build the library (for CCD devs working on ccd-case-management-web)
For CCD developers it should be noted the library should be built with just the
yarn build:esm which is much faster. That will build the JIT version that is currently used by case management web.
Test the library
yarn testfor running all your
*.spec.tstests once. Generated code coverage report may be found in
yarn test:watchfor running all you
*.spec.tsand watch for file changes.
Library development workflow
In order to debug your library in browser you need to have Angular project that will consume your library, build the application and display it. For your convenience all of that should happen automatically in background so once you change library source code you should instantly see the changes in browser.
There are several ways to go here:
- Use your real library-consumer project and link your library to it via
yarn linkcommand (see below).
- Use Angular-CLI to generate library-consumer project for you and then use
yarn linkto link your library to it.
Using consumer applications
You may take advantage of watch-modes for library build in order to see changes to your library's source code immediately in your browser.
To do so you need to:
- Open two console instances.
- Launch library build in watch mode in first console instance by running
yarn build:watch(assuming that you're in
- Launch your consumer project build (JIT version) in watch-mode by running
yarn startin second console instance (for instance assuming that you're in
As a result once you change library source code it will be automatically re-compiled and in turn your JIT consuming project (e.g. case-management-web) will be automatically re-built and you will be able to see that changes in your browser instantly.
Travis build system automatically publish NPM packages including GitHub releases whenever there is a version change in package.json
