Frontend is written in JavaScript, using Vue.js and Node.js. It requires Node.js 16 or newer. We only support LTS releases of Node.js. npm package is currently build using Node.js 18.

Preparing development environment#

Clone Github repo:

git clone

Install dependencies:

npm install

Running current development version#

Run server:

npm run serve

Kustosz UI will be available at http://localhost:8080.

It’s not very useful to run frontend without API server running. By default, frontend will assume that backend is available at You can specify another URL by setting VUE_APP_KUSTOSZ_BACKEND_URL environment variable prior to running serve command. Note that variable needs to specify full URL, including path.
