Video Version for 0.4.0.0 Installation

NodifyMe Studio is the main interface for interacting with the other components, at least initially.

There are mobile versions of NodifyMe that allow you to connect and use what you have already installed and configured but at the moment the majority of the actual configuration is done within NodifyMe Studio on the Desktop.

Downloading

The first step is, of course, getting the software. You can download the client here.

Note: Due to the early version of this program, Windows may prompt with a SmartScreen warning. This will change as the new software's reputation increases with increased downloads.

Installation

The installer is very simple and you can generally just click through unless you would like to change the install location.

Getting Around

When starting NodifyMe for the first time, you are greeted with an empty shell.

The following items may be referred to in later documents:

(1) The Navigation Pane Toggle Button: This button will open or collapse the navigation tree pane on the left.

(2) The Navigation Pane: This navigation tree will allow you to access any part of area of your Hub hierarchy without having to drill down and back out. It is often easier to navigate with this tree instead of with the back button.

(3) A view pop-out button: The pop-out button allows you to create a new window with whatever content is being shown at the moment in the Main View Area (4)

(4) Main view area: This area displays the content that is selected from the Navigation Pane. This is where all of the different screens that you can interact with will appear. You can pop these views out to a floating window by clicking on the Pop-Out button (3).

It is advisable to use the Navigation Pane as the primary way of getting around in NodifyMe, though you should be able to navigate the hierarchy simply by drilling down in the views of the different components.

That is it for now! There is not much to do in NodifyMe Studio without at least one Hub. Hubs are where all of the action is and things start getting interesting when you connect to one..

The next step is to Install a Hub OR if you already have a Hub installed learn how to get started Finding a Hub on the Network.
