Using Microclimate

After you install Microclimate and use it for the first time, accept the license agreement. You can then begin to work with projects.

You can use Microclimate to create a new project or import an existing one. Projects appear in the project list. You can check the application status and build status of your application.

You can then edit your code by using the Theia development environment, or you can choose a development environment of your own. Now, when you make a change to your project, Microclimate detects the change and automatically rebuilds and redeploys the updated project for testing. You can also performance test your project.

If you have many projects on the go at the same time, you can focus resources on those you are currently developing by disabling development on others.

Deploying projects

Finally, when your project is ready to deploy, you can use Microclimate to create a pipeline. Having created a pipeline, you can then deploy to IBM Cloud Private, or you can configure Microclimate to deploy applications to the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.

What next

Develop a project of your own, or explore Microclimate with tutorials and samples.
