You can run all commands without having just installed, just have a look into the justfile. To install just on your system, use your systems package manager. On Windows, Cargo (cargo install just), Chocolatey (choco install just) and some other sources can be used. You need to run it from a sh compatible shell on Windows (e.g git-bash).


This package comes with some unit tests under the tests directory. To run all tests you can run the just test target. You need to have typst-test in your PATH: cargo install typst-test --git https://github.com/tingerrr/typst-test.
