Using Commitizen CLI

This project uses Commitizen to ensure all pull requests follow the same format, and to ensure predictable releases with semantic-release.

To use this flow, add files as you normally would with git add ., and when you are ready to commit, simply type git commit and follow the prompts. You can read more on the Conventional Changelog format on its repository.

Testing Bob locally inside Interactive Examples

Bob is used to build the interactive-example pages and is installed as a dependency inside the interactive-examples repo. When working on changes to Bob, there is often a need to test the changes by running Bob inside the interactive-examples repo locally. To do this, use the following command:

npx install-local ~/path/to/repo/bob && node node_modules/.bin/mdn-bob


npm i mdn-bob
