Use one of the following to build and test:
gulp local # Build the compiler into built/local gulp clean # Delete the built compiler gulp LKG # Replace the last known good with the built one. # Bootstrapping step to be executed when the built compiler reaches a stable state. gulp tests # Build the test infrastructure using the built compiler. gulp runtests # Run tests using the built compiler and test infrastructure. # You can override the host or specify a test for this command. # Use --host=<hostName> or --tests=<testPath>. gulp baseline-accept # This replaces the baseline test results with the results obtained from gulp runtests. gulp lint # Runs tslint on the TypeScript source. gulp help # List the above commands.
