# [jQuery UI](http://jqueryui.com/) - Interactions and Widgets for the web

jQuery UI is a curated set of user interface interactions, effects, widgets, and themes built on top of jQuery. Whether you're building highly interactive web applications, or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.

If you want to use jQuery UI, go to [jqueryui.com](http://jqueryui.com) to get started, [jqueryui.com/demos/](http://jqueryui.com/demos/) for demos, [api.jqueryui.com](http://api.jqueryui.com/) for API documentation, or the [Using jQuery UI Forum](http://forum.jquery.com/using-jquery-ui) for discussions and questions.

If you want to report a bug/issue, please visit [bugs.jqueryui.com](http://bugs.jqueryui.com).

If you are interested in helping develop jQuery UI, you are in the right place.
To discuss development with team members and the community, visit the [Developing jQuery UI Forum](http://forum.jquery.com/developing-jquery-ui) or [#jqueryui-dev on irc.freenode.net](http://irc.jquery.org/).


## For contributors

If you want to help and provide a patch for a bugfix or new feature, please take
a few minutes and look at [our Getting Involved guide](http://wiki.jqueryui.com/w/page/35263114/Getting-Involved).
In particular check out the [Coding standards](http://wiki.jqueryui.com/w/page/12137737/Coding-standards)
and [Commit Message Style Guide](http://wiki.jqueryui.com/w/page/25941597/Commit-Message-Style-Guide).

In general, fork the project, create a branch for a specific change and send a
pull request for that branch. Don't mix unrelated changes. You can use the commit
message as the description for the pull request.


## Running the Unit Tests

Run the unit tests with a local server that supports PHP. No database is required. Pre-configured php local servers are available for Windows and Mac. Here are some options:

- Windows: [WAMP download](http://www.wampserver.com/en/)
- Mac: [MAMP download](http://www.mamp.info/en/index.html)
- Linux: [Setting up LAMP](https://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/288158-easy-lamp-server-installation)
- [Mongoose (most platforms)](http://code.google.com/p/mongoose/)


## Building jQuery UI

jQuery UI uses the [Grunt](http://github.com/gruntjs/grunt) build system.

To build jQuery UI, you must have [node.js](http://nodejs.org/) installed and then run the following commands:

```sh

# Install the Grunt CLI
npm install -g grunt-cli

# Clone the jQuery UI git repo
git clone git://github.com/jquery/jquery-ui.git
cd jquery-ui

# Install the node module dependencies
npm install

# Run the concat task to concatenate files
grunt concat

# There are many other tasks that can be run through Grunt.
# For a list of all tasks:
grunt --help
```


## For committers

When looking at pull requests, first check for [proper commit messages](http://wiki.jqueryui.com/w/page/12137724/Bug-Fixing-Guide).

Do not merge pull requests directly through GitHub's interface.
Most pull requests are a single commit; cherry-picking will avoid creating a merge commit.
It's also common for contributors to make minor fixes in an additional one or two commits.
These should be squashed before landing in master.

**Make sure the author has a valid name and email address associated with the commit.**

Fetch the remote first:

	git fetch [their-fork.git] [their-branch]

Then cherry-pick the commit(s):

	git cherry-pick [sha-of-commit]

If you need to edit the commit message:

	git cherry-pick -e [sha-of-commit]

If you need to edit the changes:

	git cherry-pick -n [sha-of-commit]
	# make changes
	git commit --author="[author-name-and-email]"

If it should go to the stable branch, cherry-pick it to stable:

	git checkout 1-10-stable
	git cherry-pick -x [sha-of-commit-from-master]

*NOTE: Do not cherry-pick into 1-10-stable until you have pushed the commit from master upstream.*
