A Factory is a URL in a standard format. When that URL is accessed by Codenvy, if it is properly formatted, then we will honor that URL and create the appropriate temporary workspace for you. A Factory URL has different formats, both encoded and non-encoded. We allow you to create Factory URLs within Codenvy itself, by generating Factory URLs that follow our specification, by using a RESTful API that will generate the URL for you or by using Shell scripts. Check out the following resources, depending on Factory creation method that you want to use:
- Non-encoded Factory (manually)
- Encoded Factory (within Codenvy)
- Using RESTful API
- Using Shell Scripts
