Download and duplicate stacks

Manish Manohar Updated by Manish Manohar

You can save any stack as a markdown file, making it easy to reuse it later.

Let's look at the required steps.

Open the stack you want to save as markdown. You need to make two updates to the URL in the browser:

  1. Add ?format=md at the end of the URL.
  2. Remove /app after

To illustrate, if this is the original URL:

Change it to

After you done the above changes in the URL, hit enter and you will get a Markdown file of the stack downloaded to your computer. You can now use this file wherever you need it.

Duplicating Stacks

In order to duplicate a stack, we can use the markdown that we downloaded in the previous step and have it duplicated on

In order to do this,

  1. open the markdown file and copy the entire file contents (or simply open the Markdown URL and copy all of the text from the site without downloading a file).
  2. Then, create a new code stack and delete all of the existing blocks.
  3. Create a new markdown block and paste the entire stack contents. Then hit save.
  4. Your stack is duplicated! Keep in mind that if you are duplicating stacks across numbers, any Stack UUIDs that are referred to will need to be changed
