Instructions on saving your work and returning to it later


  • The containers are typically available for a short period of time, so you should save your work if you are not done or intend to continue at a later time.
  • The amount of time a container will be available for is usually specified in the landing page for the application (it is typically 2 hours).
  • You can use scp or sftp to copy your code from the container to any other machine that accepts SSH connections.

  • For example: % scp mycode.* user@remote-machine:/home/user/mysavedcode/

  • When you later return to continue your work, you can start a new container from the application's landing page; login to the container and then copy back your code to this new container using scp or sftp again.

  • For example: % scp user@remote-machine:/home/user/mysavedcode/mycode.* .
