Client Setup

You need to install Node and Npm on your local machine.

Using IntelliJ

If you are using IntelliJ you can use the pre-configured Artemis (Client) run configuration that will be delivered with this repository:

  • Choose Run | Edit Configurations...

  • Select the Artemis (Client) configuration from the npm section

  • Now you can run the configuration in the upper right corner of IntelliJ

Using the command line

You should be able to run the following command to install development tools and dependencies. You will only need to run this command when dependencies change in package.json.

npm install

To start the client application in the browser, use the following command:

npm run start

This compiles TypeScript code to JavaScript code, starts the live reloading feature (i.e. whenever you change a TypeScript file and save, the client is automatically reloaded with the new code) and will start the client application in your browser on http://localhost:9000. If you have configured application-artemis.yml correctly, then you should be able to login with your TUM Online account.


In case you encounter any problems regarding JavaScript heap memory leaks when executing npm run start or any other scripts from package.json, you can adjust a memory limit parameter (node-options=--max-old-space-size=6144) which is set by default in the project-wide .npmrc file.

If you still face the issue, you can try to set a lower/higher value than 6144 MB. Recommended values are 3072 (3GB), 4096 (4GB), 5120 (5GB) , 6144 (6GB), 7168 (7GB), and 8192 (8GB).

You can override the project-wide .npmrc file by using a per-user config file (~/.npmrc).

Make sure to not commit changes in the project-wide .npmrc unless the Github build also needs these settings.
