Bee Dashboard

standard-readme compliant js-standard-style FOSSA Status

An app which helps users to setup their Bee node and do actions like cash out cheques, upload and download files or manage your postage stamps.

Warning: This project is in alpha state. There might (and most probably will) be changes in the future to its API and working. Also, no guarantees can be made about its stability, efficiency, and security at this stage.

This project is intended to be used with Bee version 1.4.0-8fa696a8. Using it with older or newer Bee versions is not recommended and may not work. Stay up to date by joining the official Discord and by keeping an eye on the releases tab.

Install globally with npm. We require Node.js's version of at least 12.x and npm v6.x (or yarn v2.x).

npm install -g @ethersphere/bee-dashboard


⚠️ To successfully connect to the Bee node, you will need to enable the Debug API and CORS. You can do so by setting cors-allowed-origins: ['*'] and debug-api-enable: true in the Bee config file and then restart the Bee node. To see where the config file is, consult the official Bee documentation


To start use:


This should open the webpage on http://localhost:8080


To build Docker image and run it, execute the following from inside project directory:

docker build . -t bee-dashboard
docker run --rm -p bee-dashboard

Bee dashboard is now available on http://localhost:8080


git clone git@github.com:ethersphere/bee-dashboard.git

cd  bee-dashboard

npm i

npm start

The Bee Dashboard runs in development mode on http://localhost:3031/

Setting the REACT_APP_DEV_MODE=1 environment variable, or opening Bee Dashboard with the query string ?devMode=1 loosens some checks. This makes it possible to develop Bee Dashboard without having connected peers and chequebook properly set up, effectively supporting the dev mode of Bee itself.


There are some ways you can make this module better:

  • Consult our open issues and take on one of them
