We are currently rolling out a new generation of Codio Boxes that will provide far greater power and control for you, as well as improved stability. These new Boxes provide full
sudo(root) access, which means you no longer need to use the Box Parts package management system to install software. Instead, you can use the apt package manager, which provides thousands of software packages that are maintained by the Ubuntu community.
When creating a Stack, here are some ideas on strategy and how to make them as useful as possible.
When you create a Stack, you should first create a new Project from the closest Stack that meets your requirements. You can also use the Base Stack and then install your own components.
You should include a full description of your Stack that appears when someone clicks on it within the Stacks listing. This information will also be available to users in Projects by going to
Project>Stack Info in their Project, which should open automatically. Check out some of Codio Certified Pack long descriptions.
Below is a template you could use.

# Title Put the name of your Stack here. ## Using the Stack Describe how the user should get started. ## Starter Pack If there are related Starter Packs you have created from this Stack that include code files, detail them here. ## Components Installed It can be helpful to others or even to you later on to describe the installed Components and versions. ## Configuration Files Detail where any component configuration files can be found. As you install components from `Tools>Install Software` a log file of all this information will be opened. ## General Information Include any general information on the use and operation of any installed components. ## Codio Documentation We recommend you include useful links to the Codio Documentation. ##Stack Specific Links Provide useful links on the Stack components.
