Build and run the UI layer

Open5e uses the Nuxt framework for Vue.js, which takes care of a lot of the architectural work for the frontend layer while allowing a large amount of flexibility.

By default, the UI layer will point to the live API. If you want to change this, you can set an environment variable for "API_URL" and direct it to a local API source. (Usually localhost:8888 if you're using the api at

Build Setup
