Deploying a sample project in Sigma
In sigma, you don't necessarily have to start a project from scratch. You may start by opening an existing project from your own GitHub account, or by opening a public project from someone else's GitHub account.
In order to make things more convenient for you, SLAppforge has provided you some sample projects covering almost all the resources supported by Sigma.
You can select and open a sample project from the Project View of the IDE. There are two ways to open the Project View of Sigma.
- At startup, after successfully logging in.
- From the editor toolbar.
