Casvisor supports Go Modules. To download the code, simply clone the code using git:

git clone



The configuration file of Casvisor backend located at conf/app.conf. You need to modify the following fields:


Modify dataSourceName to your own database connection string. Casvisor will create a database named casvisor if it doesn't exist.

driverName = mysql
dataSourceName = root:123456@tcp(localhost:3306)/
dbName = casvisor

Connect Casdoor

Modify casdoorEndpoint, clientID, clientSecret, casdoorOrganization and casdoorApplication to your own Casdoor configuration. You can get the clientID and clientSecret from the application page that you created in the previous step.

casdoorEndpoint = http://localhost:8000
clientId = c34fdf145f41313727a8
clientSecret = 615c503d4552d24a40360cf908b6d17e3b7f8832
casdoorOrganization = "casbin"
casdoorApplication = "app-casvisor"


In web/src/conf.js, you need to modify the following fields:

    export const AuthConfig = {
serverUrl: "http://localhost:8000",
clientId: "c34fdf145f4131b727a8",
appName: "app-casvisor",
organizationName: "casbin",
redirectPath: "/callback",


Before running Casvisor, make sure Casdoor is running.


In production, you need to build the frontend code first, then run the backend code.

Build frontend

cd web
yarn install
yarn build

After building successfully, the frontend bundle will be generated in web/build directory.

Run backend

go build

Visit backend server at http://localhost:19000.



If you use nginx as a reverse proxy, you need to add the following configuration to the nginx configuration file:

location / {
*** your configuration ***
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

Because Casvisor uses websocket to communicate with guacd.


In development, you need to run the frontend code and backend code at the same time.

Run frontend

cd web
yarn install
yarn start

Run backend

go build

Visit frontend server http://localhost:16001.
