1. Introduction

OperatorFabric is a modular, extensible, industrial-strength platform for use in electricity, water, and other utility operations.

It aims to facilitate operational activities for utilities in two ways :

  • Centralize real time business events in a single place to avoid having multiple screens/software. To do so, OperatorFabric provides

    • event notifications named "cards" with filtering features (severity , date , process …​ )

    • event dispatching rules on a per user basis (based on groups, organizational entities, processes…​ )

    • event-sending endpoints for business applications

    • a mechanism of templating to customize events rendering (using HTML5 )

    • a view of the events on a timeline and agenda view

    • storage of all the events (archive feature)

    • notifications via sounds

    • possibilities to integrate screen form other applications

  • Facilitate interactions between operational control centers:

    • Share information in real time, as pre-formatted cards that can be sent either manually by operators or automatically by external solutions.

    • Introduce pre-formatted question/response exchanges between control centers. This can be used to implement operational processes (with the notion of "last time to respond").

    • Share events in calendar (also allowing repeating events)

In addition, the following features are available: internationalization, light/dark mode for the UI, realtime connected users supervision, authorization mechanism.

Integration with existing IT systems is an overarching concern: support of Firefox and Chromium-based browsers, docker deployment, communication with business applications via REST API or Kafka, integration with external authentication systems (via OAuth2), monitoring via Prometheus endpoints.

OperatorFabric is part of the LF Energy coalition, a project of The Linux Foundation that supports open source innovation projects within the energy and electricity sectors.

OpFab is an open source platform licensed under Mozilla Public License V2. The source code is hosted on GitHub in this repository : operatorfabric-core.

2. Try it!

If you want to try OperatorFabric (see what the UI looks like with some test cards) in a few minutes, follow the steps below.

  1. Clone this repository

    git clone
    cd operatorfabric-core
  2. Launch our demo docker-compose file

    cd ./config/docker
  3. After a little while, log into the application UI at localhost:2002/ using operator1_fr/test as credentials.

  4. Push basic configuration and cards using the following test scripts

If you want to experiment in more depth and have more details on how it works (as well as some troubleshooting), check out our Getting Started guide!

3. Technology stack

3.1. Development

OperatorFabric is mostly written in Java and based on the Spring framework. This makes writing and integrating software for a simplified and better coordination very easy.
