Startup Script

A sandbox's startup script is run in your environment during the initial launch of a sandbox session. It can contain Bash commands to install software, configure your environment, or anything else you'd like to do!

To edit the startup script, click the gears on the left sidebar, and edit the appropriate field. For example, here's one to install the SQLAlchemy Python library:

Your script can contain multiple lines, for example:

mkdir ~/workspace/foo
echo Hello > ~/workspace/foo/bar

This script is run from the /tmp directory, so you must specify any paths either as absolute paths (e.g. /home/nt-user/workspace) or using ~ to indicate your home directory, e.g. ~/workspace.

Your startup script must complete in 60 seconds or less!
