Probably the most easier way to start and use the product locally is via Docker, a popular virtualization software.
👉 Step #1 - Clone Sources from GH
👉 Step #2 - Start the API in Docker
Once all the above commands are executed, the API should be accessible in the browser at
http://localhost:5000 (the default address). To test and interact with the interface we have multiple choices: POSTMAN,
curl or the embedded
Swagger Dashboard exposed natively by
From this point, we can code our own frontend to interact and use this minimal authentication API or use other projects already compatible to communicate with this interface:
- 👉 React Soft Dashboard - source code
- 👉 React Berry Dashboard - source code
- 👉 React Datta Able - source code
- 👉 React Purity Dashboard - source code
We can choose any product from the above list to compile and start in the local environment manually or via Docker. Let's pick React Soft Dashboard, a really nice Material-UI design crafted by Creative-Tim.
👉 Step #1 - Clone Sources (Github)
👉 Step #2 - Start the React UI in Docker
The React UI by default, redirects the guest users to authenticate and we should see in the browser the login page.

In a similar way, we can compile and start the rest of the samples using Docker or a classic manual build by typing
yarn start in the root of each product.
