Switching a Project's Stack

There are various reasons why you might want to switch your project’s stack to a new one.

  • Created new stack : this is the most important and common use case. If you have modified your stack and then created a new stack (or a new version) from it then it makes sense to point your project to it once it has been created.
  • Mistake : you specified the wrong stack when you created the project.
  • New stack version : a new version of a stack has been created and you want to point to the latest one.


You should remember that when you switch a stack, everything outside the workspace folder you see in the tree (/home/codio/workspace) will be replaced by the new stack. This is discussed at length in the What is a stack? section.

From the projects listing

Select the gear icon for the project from the main projects listing. You will then be able to change the stack or the stack version.
