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.
