DataFlex Package Manager Client
After installing the Package Manager client and starting it for the first time it will show as follows
As you can see there is no DataFlex workspace selected and no repository connected and obviously no user logged into the repository.
To get started lets set up the repository first.
Click the Settings button in the lower left corner
then select the Repositories tab
click Add to add a new repository
enter the repository URL and click connect.
After a success message is shown the Name and Owner fields should be filled and the Ok button enabled
if you have a user id you can also set an automated login for the repository. (This is not needed if you are only using the repository for downloading public packages)
Select the newly added repository and Click the default button to select this as your default repository
Then click Ok
The package manager client is aware of your DataFlex workspace. It will show important information on your workspace and also keep information on installed packages within your workspace
The client allows you to browse packages available in the repository. It will show the package information and all available versions of this package. It will also show if this package is already installed in your workspace.
