Navigating the Mini-apps tab

The Mini-apps tab

The Mini-apps tab gives team members easy access to all published Mini-apps in the workspace. Mini-apps are shown as tiles in a gallery format, and the right-hand sidebar displays summary information and status of each Mini-app, including the creating, publication and modifications dates.

Understanding the Mini-app tiles

Each Mini-app tile shows the status of that Mini-app at the current time. The status is shown in the sidebar as well as on the tile. A 'Stopped' button with a red dot means that the Mini-app is not running in the workspace. To start the Mini-app, click 'Start App' or anywhere on the tile.

A 'Running' button with a green dot means the Mini-app has been started and may be in use by another user in the workspace. To start your own session of the Mini-app, click 'Connect' or anywhere on the Mini-app tile. The status of the Mini-app is shown on the right-hand sidebar along with the name of the user who started the Mini-app. To stop the Mini-app, click 'Stop'.

Running a Mini-app

Clicking the 'Start App' button on a published Mini-app will open that Mini-app in its own dedicated tab. In the right-hand sidebar, you can view the log of the app, save the log to a file, refresh or restart the app and navigate to other published Mini-apps.

Refreshing a Mini-app should be used when the source code changes while the app is still running as refreshing will not stop the app. Meanwhile, restarting a Mini-app will stop and start the app, thus it should be used when the Mini-app has an error in the code that does not allow it to start correctly.

The Mini-app log includes information about the app events such as loaded packages, warning and errors. Therefore, logs are particularly useful for debugging your Mini-app.

Unpublishing or deleting a Mini-app

If you need to remove a Mini-app from the gallery of published apps, select the Mini-app and click on the 'Delete Mini-app' button in the right-hand sidebar.
