Quick Start Guide

Overview

The fastest way to get started on Noop is to use one of our pre-configured Templates. Any of the officially supported Templates will automatically create a running Environment with all required Resources (databases, block storage, etc.).

Creating an Application From a Template

First make sure Noop Desktop is installed.

Download Noop

On the home-screen, select the Template for the language and framework you need (If you don’t see what you need, suggest one).

Continue to follow the Template-creation process, giving your Application a name and any other necessary configuration.

Workshop will automatically:

  • Creating an Environment
  • Launching required resources (database, block storage, etc)
  • Build the source code
  • Deploy the build (locally)
  • And finally, create a local endpoint to serve the application from something.local.noop.app

Creating an Application From Scratch

The only thing required to make an app a Noop Application is a blueprint.yaml file located in the .noop directory in the app root.

See the Applications docs page for an overview of what Noop Applications are. Also check out the Blueprint docs page for a reference of what a Blueprint can define.

A helpful way to understand how an app is configured to work with Noop is to look at the guides associated with each of the officially supported templates.
