Run Application


Once the local setup is completed, the next step is to run the application locally. This document provides the steps on how to run the digit-ui on a local machine.


Configure Environment File

Step 1: To run the application in the local environment, add the .env file in the example folder -


Step 2: Copy the following content and add it to the .env file. If the user is a citizen, configure the .env file as shown below:


Step 3: To run the application as an employee, update the value of the param to - REACT_APP_USER_TYPE=EMPLOYEE.

Step 4: To direct the front end to different environments, update the REACT_APP_GLOBAL variable and add the GlobalConfig environment file corresponding to that environment.

To learn more about global config visit How to configure globalconfig.

Update both REACT_APP_PROXY_API and REACT_APP_PROXY_ASSETS to the environment URL.

Refer to this section to learn about globalConfig file.

if you do not have a global config and AWS credentials are not present, then create a temporary local config under the path:


Include this between the head tags

      var globalConfigs = (function () {
      var stateTenantId = 'od'
      var gmaps_api_key = 'AIzaSyAQOd09-vjmk1sXFb_ZQYDz2nlfhXq7Wf8'
      var finEnv = 'uat'
      var centralInstanceEnabled = false;
      var footerBWLogoURL = ''
      var footerLogoURL = ''
      var digitHomeURL = ''
      var assetS3Bucket = 'pg-egov-assets';
      var getConfig = function (key) {
        if (key === 'STATE_LEVEL_TENANT_ID') {
          return stateTenantId;
        else if (key === 'GMAPS_API_KEY') {
          return gmaps_api_key;
        else if (key === 'FIN_ENV') {
          return finEnv;
        } else if (key === 'ENABLE_SINGLEINSTANCE') {
          return centralInstanceEnabled;
        } else if (key === 'DIGIT_FOOTER_BW') {
          return footerBWLogoURL;
        } else if (key === 'DIGIT_FOOTER') {
          return footerLogoURL;
        } else if (key === 'DIGIT_HOME_URL') {
          return digitHomeURL;
        } else if (key === 'S3BUCKET') {
          return assetS3Bucket;
        } else if (key === "JWT_TOKEN"){
          return "ZWdvdi11c2VyLWNsaWVudDplZ292LXVzZXItc2VjcmV0";
