Short Description
A Carbon LDP administrative UI for viewing and managing platform data.
Full Description


Workbench to administer an on premise installation of Carbon LDP



  1. Install dependencies
  2. Clone dependency projects alongside the project's directory:

    • carbonldp-js-sdk: gulp clone
    • carbonldp-panel: gulp clone
    • angular2-carbonldp: gulp clone

      You should end up with the following directories in the same directory:

    • carbonldp-workbench
    • carbonldp-panel
    • carbonldp-js-sdk
    • angular2-carbonldp
  3. cd into carbonldp-workbench
  4. run npm install
  5. To start the application server run npm start

    Note: You may need to change the Carbon host configuration inside config/dev.config.json

NPM Scripts

package.json defines six tasks:

  • build: Runs build:semantic, copy:assets and build:prod tasks
  • build:prod: Runs Webpack bundler to generate the final dist files
  • build:semantic: Builds Semantic UI's dist files
  • clean:dist: Cleans dist directory
  • copy:assets: Copies third party libraries to the assets folder
  • postinstall: Install a compiled version of Semantic UI inside the src folder - Triggered after npm install
  • start: Runs server:dev
  • server:dev: Runs Webpack bundler in dev mode and starts the app on the host and the port specified in config/dev.config.json

Gulp Tasks

Gulp defines six tasks:

  • clean:dist: Cleans dist directory
  • clean:src: Cleans src directory, removing any unused compiled file (useful when changing branches)
  • copy:assets: Copies all the assets to dist/assets
  • copy:node-dependencies: Copies node dependencies to src/assets/node_modules so they can be treated like any normal asset
  • copy:node-dependencies:files: Copies single files
  • copy:node-dependencies:packages: Copies complete packages

Developing the Project

In order to develop this project you need to do the following:

  1. cd into carbonldp-workbench
  2. run npm start
  3. Modify the code inside this carbonldp-workbench

Developing other carbonldp's projects

As mentioned earlier, during the Setup section, this project uses the following sibling directories:

  • carbonldp-panel
  • carbonldp-js-sdk
  • angular2-carbonldp

If you want to develop any of those projects, you can do that by following these steps:

  1. cd into desired project. E.g:cd carbonldp-panel
  2. Run gulp watch to wait for changes (If the desired project is carbonldp-js-sdk you need to manually run gulp whenever you want to test a change)
  3. Cd into ../carbonldp-workbench
  4. Add "carbonldp-panel/*": [ "../carbonldp-panel/src/*" ] to the paths property of compilerOptions in tsconfig.json file
  5. Run sudo npm link DESIRED_PROJECT_PATH E.g: sudo npm link ../carbonldp-panel/dist
  6. Enter your super user credentials
  7. Run npm start

After this you will be able to see the changes whenever you modify something from the source projects.

Deploying the Project

The project is deployed as a docker image. A Dockerfile is located at the root of the project, which can be used to build the image.


  • Configure a test framework
  • Configure code linting (tslint and sasslint)
  • Get docker image version from package.json
