UBOS Docs will help you to cover the basics of the UBOS tools available to help you create an application fast and easy
After you sign in to UBOS platform first screen that you will see is the home page with a list of Workspaces. By default there will be a basic workspace with the name of your account.
What is Workspace?
Workspace - is a virtual space that allows you to gather various services, resources and work with them as a single unit. Currently in a workspace can be multiple services of Workflow manager, Databases and single application for User Interface.
Let's start work on our amazing application in our default workspace. To open workspace you need to click on
edit button in the row of the selected workspace.
As we spoke previously workspace is a unit that gathers all your services/resources which are used during the application development process.
Here is a default view of the workspace when you open it for the first time.
- Main work zone - Here will be opened each visual editor service which you will use during your application development. You can open simultaneously as many editors as you like and change the position and size of each editor by our Layout manager.
- Service manager - Used to browse, open, and manage all of the services in your project. UBOS is a tool based low-code platform - you can get started immediately by opening
UI Editor, create new Flow Manager (
Node-red) or establish new Database service for your application.
- Activity bar - Located on the far left-hand side, this lets you switch between global views in the UBOS platform. Also at the bottom of the activity bar you can open Workspace Settings.
- Top bar - Displays overall information about your workspace like Name, Versions and one click Deployment.
