The basics

If you’ve never used Indigo before, welcome! This is a quick-start guide to help get you up-and-running in no time.

IndigoStack enables you to build a “stack”, which contains all the services you need for a particular project. For example, your project might need Nginx, MySql and PHP. Together, these services are your project’s stack. You can define as many stacks as you like, and have them all run simultaneously if you wish.

Adding services to a stack
To add services to your stack, click the plus button at the bottom of the rack.

You can also configure each service. For example, you will define your sites in the Nginx or Apache services.

Additionally, IndigoStack provides a “System” stack. You don’t interact with the System stack directly, because it is automatically configured. It provides the https:// SSL certificates for your sites, and handles access to your sites by their domain names (using a reverse proxy, for those who know the jargon).
