Thanks for coming to the hands-on introduction to Web Components & Polymer!
Please complete the following steps to get started:
Mac OSX & Linux Users:
- Install NVM
- Follow the instructions in your terminal
- Install the latest version of Node:
nvm install --lts
- Make sure subsequent commands you use use the latest version of Node with NVM:
nvm use --lts(this will persist until you close your terminal tab)
Install the Polymer CLI globally:
npm install -g polymer-cli
Clone the Polymer Google Maps Codelab (
git clone https://github.com/ComcastSamples/polymer-maps.git) to your local directory where you store your code
cd polymer-mapsand install the dependencies for that project by running
Obtain a Google Maps API key and record that somewhere it will be easy to copy from so you can paste it into your code during the workshop. Note Google now requires a Credit Card to obtain a key. If you don't wish to provide Google a Credit Card, a temporary key will be shared for use during the workshop.
Join the #webcomponents Mid-Atlantic Developer Conference Slack Channel and ask questions in there. I'm happy to help before, during, and after the workshop :-)
