Create Starter PackΒΆ

You can create your own Starter Pack and upload it for others to use. Follow these steps to create a Starter Pack:

  1. In the navigation pane, click Starter Packs.

  2. On the Packs page, click New Pack.

  3. Click the Workspace Source. The following options are available:

    • Codio - Use a Codio project that contains your code.

    • Git - Specify a Git repo; use the HTTPS URL to the repository.

    • Mercurial - Specify a Mercurial repo; use the HTTPS URL to the repository.


    When you specify a Git or Mercurial repo, the repos is pulled into the project each time someone uses your Starter Pack.

  4. Specify the Stack to be used. If you only need a base Ubuntu Box, you do not need to specify a Stack.


    A Starter Pack is simply a Codio Stack and code workspace. If your Starter Pack is based on a project that has had the Box modified (additional Box components installed, npm global install etc.), these are not present in the project created from the Starter Pack.

  5. Enter a Name and Description, and optionally an Image and Tags that allow searchability.

  6. Specify the Visibility of the Starter Pack. By default, a Starter Pack is private to your account until you make it public, at which point it is displayed in the Popular and All pages where all Codio users can access it.


The organization owner can disable the ability for you to create public starter packs. See Enable or Disable Public/Private Settings.


Do not make your Starter Pack public unless you have fully tested it.

  1. Click Create.
