Setting up local environment with tutor and MFE

Hello there,

I’m new in Open Edx world. I’m trying to setup MFE with tutor ( on my local machine and it’s not working for some reason, trying to troubleshot why. My tutor instance when it starts and I got to account, it doesn’t open the accounts page that I installed locally. These are the steps that I did:

I’m using Windows as OS. Let me know if you need more info about this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried changing MFE_HOST config but then I broke whole website :slight_smile: None of the pages couldn’t load after that.

Changed from:
tutor config save --set MFE_HOST=‘
tutor config save --set MFE_HOST=‘localhost:1997’


To work in dev mode with a custom MFE you can follow these instructions GitHub - overhangio/tutor-mfe: This plugin makes it possible to easily add micro frontend (MFE) applications on top of an Open edX platform that runs with Tutor.

In summary, you need to bind-mount account MFE, rebuild the dev image, and start the environment.

Thank you for the quick response. I’ll try this.

Also note from Installing Tutor — Tutor documentation :

  • Supported OS: Tutor runs on any 64-bit, UNIX-based OS. It was also reported to work on Windows (with WSL 2).

Best of luck with Windows, but we may not be able to assist if you run into thorny issues.
