## Run frontend development server
## Build the JS/CSS assets for the Web module
The frontend requests are redirected to the local backend API server (see instructions above to launch) via the
Angular proxy.
The `web` directory contains the scripts and styles used by the thymeleaf templates
when a Germplasm, Study or Site page is rendered.
You can run the development server with the following command:
The build process for these assets can be run with the following command:
cd frontend
ng serve
cd web
yarn watch
`yarn watch` automatically picks up the changes in any files,
and rebuild the resulting assets (thanks to Webpack).
Make sure the backend is running with the `dev` profile if you do so (see above),
otherwise the changes won't be shown in the browser.
`yarn watch:prod` is also available to use production settings,
while `yarn build` and `yarn build:prod` do the same but without watching the changes.
## Harvest
Before all, take care to get data locally before running any indexing script.
