Chapter 2 Projects

Projects are the backbone of the MatrixDS platform. Everything is aggregated and executed within the context of a project; code, data, tools, and jobs. After login, you will see all your projects, the ones that you own, and those which you have been invited to participate. Here you can see several projects that are available to this user.

You can create a new project by clicking the New Project button. You will be prompted for two pieces of information, your new project a name and a description before you can save it.

You can start with a brand new project or clone an existing project (one of your other projects). To do this use the drop-down menu that says Select project to chose the project you want to clone. Cloning copies all the files, code and data associated with another project and you don’t have to be the owner to do this.

Once you click save, we can take a look at the different components that are inside this project. The next chapters cover how to use.

  • Files
  • Tools
  • Jobs
  • Users & Teams

The general project view is the tabbed view shown here.
