Testing template


Reading the instructions for adding a new workspace type, and its not clear how I would test it myself before doing the PR.

Can you please make this a bit more clear?


Could you tell me what documentation you are using for adding a new workspace type?


I am following the readme and associated links from the GitHub repo for


To be clear… The github readme clearly explains how to create a new template type, but I would like to test it first before during a PR…

Its just not clear how to some how simulate loading this template…


I’m going to get back to you on this, but it might take a while (week).


No rush, but it seems like I must be just missing something. Surely when people create new templates they must somehow test them before doing a PR???

Of course I can in the meantime just put a new template together, and hope I did it right. Is that what other people are doing maybe?


Hey, I’m terribly sorry, but we’re not currently accepting PRs for new workspace types, just for things in existing templates.

As for testing them, if you run ./templatectl ws-foo run it should start up a dev workspace inside of a container for you on port 8080: https://github.com/c9/templates/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#testing-runnersother-gui-functionality
