Installing The Traffic Portal Developer Environment

  • Clone the traffic_control repository
  • Navigate to the traffic_control/traffic_portal of your cloned repository.
  • Run npm install to install application dependencies into traffic_portal/node_modules. Only needs to be done the first time unless traffic_portal/package.json changes.
  • Run bower install to install client-side dependencies into traffic_portal/app/bower_components. Only needs to be done the first time unless traffic_portal/bower.json changes.
  • Run grunt to package the application into traffic_portal/app/dist, start a local https server (Express), and start a file watcher.
  • Navigate to https://localhost:8443


  • The Traffic Portal consumes the Traffic Ops API. By default, Traffic Portal assumes Traffic Ops is running on https://localhost:8444. Temporarily modify traffic_portal/conf/config.js if you need to change the location of Traffic Ops.
