Creating a project from scratch
Time to Code
Creating a project from scratch is to begin a project without any pre-existing code β€” a complete blank IDE.
Create a new project from scratch
Creating a project from scratch gives you the freedom to do things your way. You can setup your folder structure, libraries and packages on a blank canvas.
  • Click the 'New Project' button on your NimbleBox dashboard​
  • Enter the project name and select the template you'd like to choose from. You can start from scratch or you can clone an existing project from GitHub as well.
  • Select CPU or GPU based on your requirement.


Using CPU to write code will save your NimbleBox credits! You can easily switch between hardware options later.
  • Initialize the project with either VS code, Jupyter Notebook or Jupyter Lab.
  • Click on the 'Create 'button to get started!
Starting the instance on NimbleBox


Please be patient. The cloud instance takes around 2 minutes to set-up and start. Until the instance is running, you will not be charged for this time.

πŸ”§ Troubleshooting

'Instance Not Found' error
Here are a few things you can do if your instance is missing:
  1. 1.
    Make sure the instance is running. This could happen when the hardware is pre-emptible.
  2. 2.
    Make sure you have launched the correct instance and opened the webpage for the same.
  3. 3.
    If all else fails, try refreshing the page: Windows : Ctrl + F5 ​Mac : Command + Shift + R
