Building Universal Dashboard

Universal Dashboard is a web application built on .NET Core, ASP.NET Core and React. You will need some build tools to get started.



To build the Universal Dashboard release build, run build.ps1 -Configuration Release from the root source directory.

Building and Debugging

Build the UniversalDashboard solution with dotnet build.

dotnet build .\UniversalDashboard.sln

You can also build the .NET components of UD using Visual Studio 2017.

Run the Webpack dev server.

cd .\client
npm run dev

When building your dashboard in debug mode, make sure to use the port 10001. The Webpack dev server will listen on port 10000. If you open the dashboard in your browser, use the 10000 port. See the integration tests for examples.
