I can set base href when building "ng build --prod --bh /ui/" but I can't do that when running development server with "ng serve". It would be nice to some way to set it up easily.

Why you need that? Just make it opposite: use default "/" for development and "/ui/" for production.

I am using "ng serve" for development (base href: "/", and mocked back-end)
and to quickly test it with real back-end and for that i need to have base href set to "/ui/" (all our services are behind proxy).

ng serve doesn't support base href, and we're not looking at supporting it at the moment.

@kpociecha I managed to run serve with base href using a proxy. It's not perfect but will do the job for the time being.

If the base href I need is project then:

ng serve --proxy-config proxy.conf.json --live-reload-base-url /project/

And in proxy.cong.json:

    "context": [
    "target": {
      "host": "localhost",
      "protocol": "http:",
      "port": 4200
    "secure": false,
    "pathRewrite": {
      "^/project": "/"

In index.html (we need to set this manually because --bh won't work with ng serve):
<base href="/editor/">
