If you want to work only on the frontend side of Redash, and have a Redash instance
deployed already (running version 1.0.0 or newer), you can use this instance as
your API server and run locally only the webpack dev-server.
The setup in this case is very simple:
- Install Node.js (v6 or later is recommended, can be installed with Homebrew on OS/X)
- Git clone the repository.
- Change to the repository directory, and install npm packages:
- Start webpack dev-server:
REDASH_BACKEND="URL of your redash server" npm run start.
REDASH_BACKEND="" part of the command sets the URL of your remote Redash server.
