Stratos comprises of two main components:
- A front-end UI that runs in your web browser. This is written in Typescript and uses the Angular framework.
- A back-end that provides a web-based API to the front-end. This is written in Go.
Depending on what you are contributing, you will need to develop with the front-end, back-end or both.
Build & Run Locally
For a quick-start to get Stratos front and back ends built and running locally on a development system, follow the steps below.
You will need to have
nodejs installed in your development environment.
This will build both the frontend and backend and run the backend in a mode where it will also serve the static resources for the frontend.
You can open a web browser and navigate to (https://127.0.0.1:5443) and login with username
admin and password
To develop the frontend we recommend reading through the frontend doc. This includes a faster way to run Stratos and see your changes.
Additional back end docs are available here before making any changes to the code.
