Liza is a data collection, validation, and processing framework for JavaScript.


## About
The Liza Data Collection Framework&mdash;"Liza" for short&mdash;is an effort
to clean up, formalize, and expand upon a framework that was developed at
RT Specialty / LoVullo for collecting, validating, and processing large amounts
of user input for insurance quoting.


## Configuring
If your distribution does not contain a `configure' file in the project
root, then you likely have the sources as committed to the project
repository; you may generate the script by issuing the following command:

```
  $ ./autogen.sh
```

You may then see `./configure --help` for more information.


## Building
If `configure` is not available, see the section "Configuring" above.


```
  $ ./configure   # see --help for optional arguments
  $ npm install   # install js dependencies
  $ make          # build
  $ make check    # run test cases
```


## Documentation
Compiled documentation for the latest release is available via our GitLab
mirror, which uses the same build pipeline as we do on our internal GitLab
instance.  Available formats are:

- [Multi-page HTML][doc-html]
- [PDF][doc-pdf]
- [Info][doc-info]


## Hacking
