I have a question regarding building Skulpt.
I created a simple module which does basic maths calculation. I created a new JS module file in "Skulpt/src/lib" as instructed in the documents. However, every time I make change to the file I have to rebuild the whole program by navigating to the repository and running ./ dist.

This tends to take a minute or two which can be annoying as I am constantly changing and adding new functions and they need to be tested.
Is there anyway which I can do to avoid building the whole program every time I modify the source code or add anything? Apologise in advance if this question has been answered before.

The most efficient is probably to  have your test code in a .py file.  then you can simply ./ run    without need to rebuild the dist.  If you have created a webpage and are linking to the files in dist, then a rebuild will always be necessary.

I have integrated Skulpt editor in my project. I'm using Visual Studio 2017 to develop a project. As of now, I have created Skulpt/src/lib/ file manually. But I want this file to include in skulpt-stdlib.js file dynamically. How to do this ?? Please help me.
