Monster UI · GitHub license CircleCI branch#

The JavaScript framework to leverage the power of Kazoo.

Getting Started#

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development purposes. See the Using Docker section for notes on how to automate the following steps by running a script within a Docker container



Clone the official monster-ui repository:

git clone monster-ui

Go to the project's folder:

cd monster-ui

Install dependencies:

npm install


In order for the UI to load the data from your server, we need to specify which API to use. To do so, open the config.js file located in src/js/ folder and add the URL of your server as the value of the default property.

    api: {
      'default': 'http://my.kazoo.server/'

For a full list and comprehensive descriptions of all the configurable options, head over to the dedicated documentation.


Use the gulp command to build and launch the web server


Access your development environment at http://localhost:3000/

Using Docker#

If you are using Docker containers, we made it easy for you to set up a development environment. You will just need to clone the monster-ui repository and add your API URL to the config.js file as explained in the Install and Configure sections. After that, execute our custom script (made by Pierre Fenoll) in your Docker container:


This script will install npm and gulp, as well as the npm dependencies and finally run the gulp command. You will be able to access the development environment at http://localhost:3000/.

It also starts by pulling your apps installed in src/apps before starting the server. To disable this behavior use the no-update flag:

./ no-update
