Cross-browser Compatibility

Inform the consumers of this component in README.usage.md of any necessary polyfills and how to use Polyfill.io to construct requests for specific features.

Continuous Integration

To hook up your project to Origami continuous integration, a one-time manual process is currently required.

Please send your request for one of the following GitHub or BitBucket options to: pearson-design-accelerator@pearson.com or HipChat


GitHub repositories will integrate with Travis CI, which will publish to the public scope in Pearson's npm organization.


BitBucket repositories will integrate with Solano CI, which will publish to the private scope in Pearson's npm organization.

Initial Machine Setup

  1. Install Git.
  2. Install Node 4.0.0 or greater - Need to run multiple versions of Node? Use nvm.
  3. On a Mac? You're all set. If you're on Windows, complete the steps for your OS below.

On Windows:

  1. Install Ruby as the runtime engine for SCSS.
  2. Install Python 2.7. Some node modules may rely on node-gyp, which requires Python on Windows.

Quick Start

See the project working before changing anything!

In your local repo:

npm install
npm run dev

Navigate to: localhost:8081/demo

Where are the files being served from?

Webpack serves your component in memory when you npm run dev. No physical files are written. When the component is built using npm run build, physical files are written to /build.

Additionally, Hot Module Replacement is activated in the webpack dev server; saved changes to /src are automatically reloaded in the browser. Changes to the demo/index.html itself, however, do require a manual page refresh.


Build the bundle(s) manually at any time, and minify all JavaScript for production:

npm run build


The project is wired to unit test with the popular Mocha framework and the expect assertion library.

It is also enabled for the following options:

  • shallow rendering with React's test utilities

  • Rendering a component into a detached DOM node in the document, using jsdom

Linting will run automatically prior to executing the test suite.

npm test    

Spec Compliance

Determine if your component passes a series of checks for Origami v2 compliance.

npm run verify

Translations for Internationalization

It is expected that applications will pass in translated text for dynamic content, and your component simply needs to render whatever is passed in.

For text inherent to the component (e.g. button text or input placeholder), add JSON translations for each supported locale to the translations folder, and use the locale configuration parameter.

Publish to Pearson npm Registry

For public packages only, add the following npm script to the package.json:

"postpublish": "npm access public && echo 'Package scope set to public!'"

Do not manually version or tag your project. Instead, when you are ready to publish an update to npm, manually invoke the release script in the master branch. It handles all of that and invokes CI publishing to npm on behalf of the pearson-ux account.

Additionally, there is no need to manually maintain a change log - if you follow the commitizen conventions for commit messages, a change log will automatically be generated during the release process.

Finally, before you run the following command, ensure that you don't have to manually authenticate every time you perform a network operation with Git.

npm run release

How do I debug?

Source maps are enabled for the webpack dev server. Using Chrome dev tools - open the "Sources" tab, navigate to top/webpack://./, and you will find the original source files for which you can set breakpoints in Chrome's debugger.

To take advantage of source maps, you must enable JavaScript source maps in your browser.

Optionally, install React developer tools for additional React debugging support in Chrome dev tools under the "React" tab.

If you find any bugs or have a feature request, please open an issue on github!
