Local Loop Installation
Install and run your Loop locally.
Open the Olive Helps application and navigate to the Loop Library (either from the menu or from the bottom navigation bar).
Loop Authors Tab
Within the Loop Library window, click on the Loop Authors tab in the top navigation bar. Navigate to Local Loops.
Local Loops
If you cannot find this section of the Loop Library, please refer to the Becoming a Loop Author guide
You will see an interface displaying all of your local Loops.
Local Loop Examples
To add a new Loop, click Install Local Loop
Fill out the form -- it doesn't have to be perfect just yet since this Loop will only be visible to you. Under Local Loop, use the browse function to navigate to the $PROJECT_LOCATION/dist which contains your loop.js file which you built earlier. Select the loop.js file.
Local Loop file input
A local Loop will not be visible to others -- you can try anything out here, it's your space.
Once you're done, click Install Local Loop
Install your Loop
Your Loop will now display in the Local Loops interface. You can restart and pause or unpause the Loop from here. Also, you can click on the Loop's title/description/picture to view more details and actions.
At this point, if the Loop has no errors, you should see the first Whisper from your Loop if it has one (not all Loops kick off a Whisper right away -- some are event triggered). In our Hello World case, you should see your first Whisper!
Hello World Whisper
Congratulations! You have officially created and installed your first Loop.
Remember, you must rebuild and restart your Loop after you've made changes to it for those changes to take effect.
