Creating and importing projects
Now that you have configured Codewind to be used remotely, you are now ready to:
- Create a new project
- Import a project from your local Codewind instance to your remote Codewind instance on the cloud
Create a new project
Go to the Codewind panel and click the Plus (+) icon on the new cloud deployment:
Select the template type and enter a project name. Your new project is built and after a few seconds begins running in the cloud.
Import an existing local project to the cloud
Copy an existing local project, for example
myFirstNodeProject, over to the remote Codewind deployment:
1. Select the remote deployment and click the
Add existing project button:
2. Go to the folder containing the local project files and click
Add to Codewind:
Codewind prompts you to confirm the project type, in this case, identified as
Yes. Project files are copied over to the Codewind server, and the new
myFirstNodeProject appears in the Codewind panel:
4. Codewind begins building the code and the Docker image. Moments later the project image is uploaded to Docker Hub and used by your cloud deployment to provision a new pod:
CloudName1 cluster is now running and ready.
You have now:
- Deployed a new Codewind install into OpenShift.
- Configured your IDE to use this new deployment.
- Registered all the necessary security parameters.
- Created a new project that builds and runs in the cloud.
- Copied an existing local project to build and run in the cloud.
