Upon downloading Spacedecode desktop client, a directory called SpaceD will be created on your home folder. We refer to this as Workspace, this is where everything you create is stored.


The Worspace is organised in a hierarchical tree structure. The first folder you will get when you access SpaceD is a user folder, namespace folder in our case. After creating a project on Spacedecode (If you created it online, make sure you have pulled it to your local) Spacedecode will create a project folder - inside this folder you will find auto generated and a project.yml file. The project file contains information about the project and the README contains project description.

If you have created vessels you will also find vessel folders inside the project folder along with the rootfs folder.


Vessel folders contain vessel.yml file, which is a configuration file that allows you change the way a vessel behaves. This is how it looks:
