Watch code for changes, re-transpile and run unit tests:

gulp watch

Test

For tests, the default sims required are an iOS 9.2 iPhone 6 and iPad 2, which you can create as follows if one doesn't already exist on your system (use xcrun simctl list to check first):

xcrun simctl create "iPhone 6" "iPhone 6" 9.2
xcrun simctl create "iPad 2" "iPad 2" 9.2

Then you can run unit and e2e tests:

// unit tests:
gulp once
 
// e2e tests - specify your desired iOS version, for example iOS8.4:
DEVICE=ios84 gulp e2e-test
