Build Environment to develop base on Jitsi-meet source code


Hi team,
I install jitsi meet quick install success. Now i wish build jitsi meet from code and understand to develope base on jitsi-meet.
Pls help me to build environment to develop.
some task that i actived:

  • download source code
  • install webstorm
  • install node 8



Once you have source code you need to install the dependencies: npm i

Then you can run your local copy and use our development servers by doing: make dev

That is, the frontend will be running on your machine and accessible in localhost, but the videobridge is somewhere on the internet. Make local changes and see how it updates!
