Create Studios and Index Stacks

Before you start

A Studio has at least one Stack, and each Stack can have Templates and Plugins. To speed up the creation and publishing of your Studio, you should already have your Stack, Templates, Plugins, and filled out the information in the .yaml files. All the information will be displayed in the Studio Website when your Studio is published.

For more information on how to populate the .yaml files, see the pages:


There are two ways to access the Studios:

  1. Login via SSO. The user profile type and the Organization you are part of will be identified automatically;
  2. You can login with GitHub to access StackSpot.

Studios' Types

When you create a studio, you can see these types below:

  • Draft Studios: They are only visible to the person who created them and to the person who manages an Organization. Every new Studio is created as a Draft.
  • Private Studios: They are only visible to people in your organization.
  • Published Studios: They are visible and can be used by everyone inside and outside an organization.
  • Verified Studios: The Organizations validate the Studio and the Stacks. It makes sure is safe and qualified to use.

Create a Studio and index your Stacks

You can create and publish Studios with Stacks through the StackSpot's Website.

Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Upload the Stack to a Git repository

After creating and testing all the components of your Stack, you can upload it to a repository and share it. Go to the Stack folder and follow the steps below:

1. Add a repository for your Stack. Example:
git remote add origin <url-of-your-repository>

2. Add the files and commit. Example:
git add --all e git commit --message <commit-message>

3. Send your Stack. Example:
git push.

Step 2. Log in to the website

Log in with your credentials to the Studio website page. You are redirected to a dashboard with the available Studios and Stacks for your organization.

Step 3. Create a Studio

In the dashboard, click on Create Studio.


All users of an Organization, can create a Studio in Draft

Step 4. Fill in information about the Studio

On create a new Studio screen, fill in basic information about your Studio:

  • Studio Name: the name of the Studio.
  • Tell us a little about the Studio: write a more detailed description of your Studio.

Step 5. Fill in information about the Stacks

Fill in the information about the Stacks you add to the Studio:

  • Stack Repository: link of your Stack's repository.
  • Visibility: permissions to see your Stacks in your organization.

You can add Stacks after the Studio has been created.

After clicking on finish, your Studio is available to use on the dashboard.

By default every new Studio is created as a Draft, to change this status you need to fill out the Typeform form located in the top banner of your logged session.

  1. Organization (Login/SSO) can create/index unlimited Studios and Stacks.
  2. A Community Organization (GitHub Login) can create only one Studio and index two Stacks.

Studio and Stacks Management

When you click on a Studio in your Organization, you can:

  • View and edit information and the Studio's visibility.
  • You can also make changes to the Stacks configuration, such as specifying the maturity level it is at, and whether it will be available on StackSpot's website.

You can still add Stacks after creating your Studio on this screen. Click on add a new Stack button located at the bottom of the screen.
