You'll find everything you need in our documentation (German).
To build evcc from source, Go 1.18 and Node 18 are required.
Build and run go backend. The UI becomes available at http://127.0.0.1:7070/
For frontend development start the Vue toolchain in dev-mode. Open http://127.0.0.1:7071/ to get to the livelreloading development server. It pulls its data from port 7070 (see above).
npm run start
We use linters (golangci-lint, Prettier) to keep a coherent source code formatting. It's recommended to use the format-on-save feature of your editor. For VSCode use the Go, Prettier and Veture extension. You can manually reformat your code by running:
Changing UI code
To ensure reproducability the build frontend artifacts are part of the source code repository. If you've made changes to frontend code, please make sure to rebuild the production assets before you commit.
evcc supports a massive amount of different devices. To keep our documentation and website in sync with the latest software the core project (this repo) generates meta-data that's pushed to the
evcc.io repository. Make sure to update this meta-data every time you make changes to a templates.
If you miss one of the above steps Gitub Actions will likely trigger a Porcelain error.
Adding or modifying translations
evcc already includes many translations for the UI. Weblate Hosted is used to maintain all languages. Feel free to add more languages or verify and edit existing translations. Weblate will automatically push all modifications on a regular base to the evcc repository.
evcc believes in open source software. We're committed to provide best in class EV charging experience.
Maintaining evcc consumes time and effort. With the vast amount of different devices to support, we depend on community and vendor support to keep evcc alive.
While evcc is open source, we would also like to encourage vendors to provide open source hardware devices, public documentation and support open source projects like ours that provide additional value to otherwise closed hardware. Where this is not the case, evcc requires "sponsor token" to finance ongoing development and support of evcc.
The personal sponsor token requires a Github Sponsorship and can be requested at sponsor.evcc.io.
