Exploring the commonly used screens in the platform offers a rich range of features. While it may initially seem overwhelming, this section provides helpful navigation tips and guidance to make your experience seamless and enjoyable.


The main home screen of any project will look something like this:

The navigation bar at the top of the page provides quick access to other projects and groups and search functionality, help, user profile, and settings.

Every group and project includes this handy navigation indicator showing where you are in the current group hierarchy, with links to each parent group.

Project sidebar

The project sidebar contains quick links to the most commonly used items within the project, including:

1. Project information

The Project information sidebar menu is a dropdown menu item that links to other information about the project.

Project header

Here, you will find the main project information, such as the project identifier, summary stats on Git interactions and storage, a graphical view of code usage, branch selector, and other action buttons.

Last commit

Below the header, you will find details of the last commit to the selected branch, including the core information provided by the contributor and the current pipeline status.

Project files

The remainder of the main project page is the file browser, showing all the directories and files in the currently-selected branch. However, for editing code, we recommend using the WebIDE. This is accessed via the button just above the project header.
