No package.json?


Followed all the instructions for setting up OJS on my local without issue, and am trying to continue to follow the steps in the README. Composer set up fine, but there’s no package.json at the root level?

I fixed this by just copying over the package.json from the master branch on Github (

Is there a reason you don’t include these dev files for the OJS downloads from here?

Hi @asasasasas,

That’s a pretty standard way of doing things – the .tar.gz file gets Javascript and composer dependencies pre-built, and if you’d like to tinker with this yourself, a git checkout is recommended.
