Restart and Reset

Codio offers the ability to restart and to reset your project’s Box. You can find both options in the ‘Project’ menu.


This operation reboots the Box, which usually takes a few seconds.


This operation is fairly destructive and should be used with caution. It resets the Box to its fresh state but leaves your code files untouched.

  • any new folders or files that have been created will be deleted
  • all parts of the Box outside of the ~/workspace folder will be reset
  • all code files in the ~/workspace folder are untouched
  • a Box restart

After a Reset, you will need to reinstall components (npm modules, ruby gems etc.) and other modifications you may have made.
