Do not run the following steps on your production nodes.
Instructions on how to build the panel are also available in the BUILDING.md (opens new window) file.
The frontend of the Panel is built with React. Any changes to the source files require to recompile it. This also applies to style sheets. The following sections explain how to do so.
The following commands will install the necessary dependencies for building the Panel assets.
The build tools require NodeJS, yarn is used as the package manager.
# Ubuntu/Debian curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_16.x | sudo -E bash - apt install -y nodejs # CentOS curl -sL https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_16.x | sudo -E bash - sudo yum install -y nodejs yarn # CentOS 7 sudo dnf install -y nodejs yarn # CentOS 8
npm i -g yarn # Install Yarn cd /var/www/pterodactyl yarn # Installs panel build dependencies
The following command will rebuild the Panel frontend. For NodeJS version 17 and above, you must enable the
--openssl-legacy-provider option before building.
cd /var/www/pterodactyl export NODE_OPTIONS=--openssl-legacy-provider # for NodeJS v17+ yarn build:production # Build panel
You can use command
yarn run watch to view the progress of your changes in almost real-time for easier development. Once you're satisfied with your changes build the panel using the previously mentioned
yarn build:production command.
