Desktop Application Basics
This is a graphical user interface installed on your primary local system, e.g. a laptop. Here are a few useful tips and flows for working with the Desktop App.
The main pattern
Start by selecting or adding a new Location in the main window,
A separate window for the Location will open to the home tab, e.g.
My Projects | local, and show the Projects on disk in that Location.
Selecting a Project in the main
My Projectstab will open a tab for the Project in the Location window.
Closing the tab will close the Project. If the project container is running, it will be stopped.
You can have multiple Location windows open at the same time.
Closing the window will deactivate the Location and kill any active CLI sessions you have in that Location if no other windows have that location open.
You can have multiple Projects open in a Location Window.
Closing the Project will stop the Project container if it is running.
You cannot have the same Project in the same location open in multiple windows.
Integrations are connected via the CLI or Desktop, and then they are available for use in all Locations and Projects.
An integration for a private GitLab server must first be created before it can be connected.
