Getting Started

You'll find everything you need in our documentation.


To build evcc from source, Go 1.21 and Node 18 are required.

Build and run go backend. The UI becomes available at

make install-ui
make ui
make install

Cross Compile

To compile a version for an ARM device like a Raspberry Pi set GO command variables as needed, eg:

GOOS=linux GOARCH=arm GOARM=6 make

UI development

For frontend development start the Vue toolchain in dev-mode. Open to get to the livelreloading development server. It pulls its data from port 7070 (see above).

npm install
npm run dev

Integration tests

We use Playwright for end-to-end integration tests. They start a local evcc instance with different configuration yamls and prefilled databases. To run them, you have to do a local build first.

make ui build
npm run playwright

Simulating device state

Since we dont want to run tests agains real devices or cloud services we've build a simple simulator that lets you emulated meters, vehicles and loadpoints. The simulators web interface runs on http://localhost:7072.

npm run simulator

Run an evcc instance that uses simulator data. This configuration runs with a very high refresh interval to speed up testing.

make ui build
./evcc --config tests/simulator.evcc.yaml

Code formatting

We use linters (golangci-lint, Prettier) to keep a coherent source code formatting. It's recommended to use the format-on-save feature of your editor. For VSCode use the Go, Prettier and Veture extension. You can manually reformat your code by running:

make lint
make lint-ui

Changing templates

evcc supports a massive amount of different devices. To keep our documentation and website in sync with the latest software the core project (this repo) generates meta-data that's pushed to the docs and repository. Make sure to update this meta-data every time you make changes to a templates.

make docs

If you miss one of the above steps Gitub Actions will likely trigger a Porcelain error.

Adding or modifying translations

evcc already includes many translations for the UI. Weblate Hosted is used to maintain all languages. Feel free to add more languages or verify and edit existing translations. Weblate will automatically push all modifications on a regular base to the evcc repository.

Weblate Hosted Languages


evcc believes in open source software. We're committed to provide best in class EV charging experience. Maintaining evcc consumes time and effort. With the vast amount of different devices to support, we depend on community and vendor support to keep evcc alive.

While evcc is open source, we would also like to encourage vendors to provide open source hardware devices, public documentation and support open source projects like ours that provide additional value to otherwise closed hardware. Where this is not the case, evcc requires "sponsor token" to finance ongoing development and support of evcc.

The personal sponsor token requires a Github Sponsorship and can be requested at
