This is the development repo! You’ll need to build Leafpub using the instructions below before running it.
Download the latest ready-to-use version from: https://www.leafpub.org/download
Leafpub uses Composer and NPM to manage dependencies and Gulp as its task runner. To contribute to this project, you’ll need to clone the repository and install the required development tools listed below.
Please read through our contributing guidelines.
Once you have the necessary development tools installed:
- Open a terminal
- Navigate to the root directory of your cloned repo
- Run the following command:
Composer will install its own dependencies and then run
npm install. This may take a few minutes as packages are downloaded. Once complete, Composer will trigger
gulp build which will generate all the assets you need to run Leafpub.
Important: You’ll also need to add the default theme to
content/themes/range/ manually. This will happen automatically once Leafpub is out of beta.
From the root directory, you can use
gulp help to see all available tasks:
Usage gulp [TASK] [OPTIONS...] Available tasks build Run all build tasks. [build:fonts, build:images, build:prune, build:scripts, build:styles] build:fonts Build font assets.

You can run Leafpub on PHP’s built in web server using the following command:
