Run metabase from source - where's the GUI?!


I’m trying to run metabase from source on a linux ubuntu 18.04 machine. (so I can ultimately change the CSS of a dashboard)

I have followed the instructions in the developer’s guide.

I am able to run the backend server with lein ring server, but yarn build hot builds the frontend (with warnings), I can open localhost:8080 which shows a blank page with links to ‘interfaces’, ‘lint’, ‘src’ and ‘test’.

If I try localhost:8080/app/dist the page comes up with an error `cannot GET /app/dist/’

Any help would be great, thanks!

Hi @mike1
I usually yarn run build-hot, which has some warnings, but they can generally be ignored.
Then I run lein ring server, which can take some time and when finished it’ll open localhost:3000
It can easily take 15 minutes on my computer to get up and running.
What do you see in the log when running lein ring server?

Doing it in that order, then going to localhost:3000 rather than localhost:8080 works.

Thanks for your help @flamber
