Although eventually, we will merge the config server UI to the light-portal view, we still have a view folder in the light-config-server repo so that UI developers can use it to try the UI and add UI components. This tutorial will show you how to start config server API to support the UI development.
We need to start the docker-compose-integration-test.yml from the light-docker repo. This will start the MongoDB as the config server depends on it.
docker-compose -f docker-compose-integration-test.yml up
Start the config server in IDE or with fat jar with the default configuration.
mvn clean install -Prelease
java -jar target/server.jar
Start the view application
A browser tab will open with URL point to http://localhost:3000/
