    • Mac OSX
    • Linux
    • Windows (via WSL 2)

Download and installation

  2. Unpack the Design Kit (example for version 8.0):
  3. copy
    cd airlock-iam-loginapp-design-kit-8.0
  4. The installed directory contains 2 files (and a hidden folder that should not be modified):
    • with a link to the latest documentation
    • sdk: a CLI to use the Loginapp Design Kit

Known limitations

The Loginapp Design Kit uses the underlying operating system's ability to monitor all files to detect changes. The Loginapp Design Kit uses this mechanism to detect when the page needs to be refreshed automatically. How many files can be monitored depends on the configuration of the number of inotify watches configured in the operating system.

This works well on standalone computers but running multiple instances of the Loginapp Design Kit on a server system may require an increase of inotify watches permitted by the operating system.
