Source code structure

The source code of Kraken is divided in several folders:

  • backend: this folder contains a Gradle multi-modules project that build all Java backends of Kraken,
  • deployment: private Git sub-module used to create and deploy all Docker containers,
  • development: contains shell scripts and docker-compose configuration to start the InfluxDb/Grafana stack in dev mode,
  • documentation: private Git sub-module that builds Kraken's documentation,
  • frontend: this folder contains an Angular project with several libraries and two applications: administration and gatling.

To run Kraken from the source code you need to:

  1. Start the development stack of InfluxDB/Grafana
  • cd development
  • ./
  1. Start the backend servers
  • cd backend
  • make copy-data (one time only)
  • make serve-storage
  • make serve-command
  • make serve-docker
  • make serve-static
  • make serve-analysis
  1. Start the frontend applications

Kraken Dev Architecture

Tests and bug finders


  • ./test-coverage-all to generate test coverage for the complete project,
  • make test APP=<library-or-app> to run tests for a single module (for example make test APP=commons),
  • make lint to run TSLint on the whole project.


  • make check to run all unit tests and SpotBugs,
  • make test APP=<module-path> to run unit test for a single sub-module (for example make test APP=:commons:docker-client).
