  • npm install to setup project dependencies including the Composer dependencies via the postinstall hook. Configures a pre-commit hook that lints all JS and PHP code before each commit.

  • npm run build to create a release in the dist directory. We include Composer files since the same bundle is used for the Composer package.

  • npm run deploy to deploy the plugin to the plugin respository.
