[Beta] Web UI

Warning: This is an experimental feature. To our knowledge, this is stable, but there are still rough edges in the experience. Contributions are welcome!


The Feast Web UI allows users to explore their feature repository through a Web UI. It includes functionality such as:

  • Browsing Feast objects (feature views, entities, data sources, feature services, and saved datasets) and their relationships

  • Searching and filtering for Feast objects by tags


There are several ways to use the Feast Web UI.

Feast CLI

The easiest way to get started is to run the feast ui command within a feature repository:

Output of feast ui --help:

Usage: feast ui [OPTIONS]

Shows the Feast UI over the current directory

-h, --host TEXT                 Specify a host for the server [default:]
-p, --port INTEGER              Specify a port for the server [default: 8888]
-r, --registry_ttl_sec INTEGER  Number of seconds after which the registry is refreshed. Default is 5 seconds.
--help                          Show this message and exit.

This will spin up a Web UI on localhost which automatically refreshes its view of the registry every registry_ttl_sec

Importing as a module to integrate with an existing React App

This is the recommended way to use Feast UI for teams maintaining their own internal UI for their deployment of Feast.

Start with bootstrapping a React app with create-react-app

npx create-react-app your-feast-ui

Then, in your app folder, install Feast UI and its peer dependencies. Assuming you use yarn

yarn add @feast-dev/feast-ui
yarn add @elastic/eui @elastic/datemath @emotion/react moment prop-types inter-ui react-query react-router-dom use-query-params zod typescript query-string d3 @types/d3

Edit index.js in the React app to use Feast UI.

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import "./index.css";

import FeastUI from "@feast-dev/feast-ui";
import "@feast-dev/feast-ui/dist/feast-ui.css";

    <FeastUI />

When you start the React app, it will look for project-list.json to find a list of your projects. The JSON should looks something like this.

  "projects": [
      "name": "Credit Score Project",
      "description": "Project for credit scoring team and associated models.",
      "id": "credit_score_project",
      "registryPath": "/registry.json"
  • Note - registryPath only supports a file location or a url.

Then start the React App

yarn start


The advantage of importing Feast UI as a module is in the ease of customization. The <FeastUI> component exposes a feastUIConfigs prop thorough which you can customize the UI. Currently it supports a few parameters.

Fetching the Project List

You can use projectListPromise to provide a promise that overrides where the Feast UI fetches the project list from.

    projectListPromise: fetch(SOME_PATH, {
      headers: {
        "Content-Type": "application/json",
    }).then((res) => {
      return res.json();

Custom Tabs

You can add custom tabs for any of the core Feast objects through the tabsRegistry.

const tabsRegistry = {
  RegularFeatureViewCustomTabs: [
      label: "Custom Tab Demo", // Navigation Label for the tab
      path: "demo-tab", // Subpath for the tab
      Component: RFVDemoCustomTab, // a React Component

    tabsRegistry: tabsRegistry,

Examples of custom tabs can be found in the ui/custom-tabs folder.
