cd frontend npm install
src/config.js in your editor and update the values to match where you're hosting the bridge's http server. You may use a reverse proxy such as NGINX. If you just want to run and use it locally, the defaults are fine.
Once you're done tweaking the configuration, you can build it:
npm run build
