Running the UI5 Web Components Playground App Locally

The deployed playground can be run locally to test your changes and samples. In order to do so, you have to follow the steps below:

1. Install Ruby.

See how to install Ruby depending on your OS here.

Note: Some OS might come with built-in Ruby, so you don’t have to install it on your own. (To check if Ruby is installed, run ruby -v in the terminal.)

2. Install Bundler.

Bundler is a tool for managing dependencies in Ruby. You need to install version 2.02 of Bundler. In order to install it run:

gem install bundler -v 2.0.2

3. Go to the playground package.

4. Install all of the playground dependencies.

bundle install

5. Go to the project root folder.

6. Start the playground locally.

In your terminal, run the following command:

yarn start:playground

This will build all the necessary assets and will start local server on your machine. To access the playground, visit: http://localhost:4000/
