Installing exporters

How to install exporters in Supernova

Plan: All

In order to use an exporter, it must be installed in your workspace. The exporter will then be available to all developers with access to your workspace. There are two ways to install an exporter package:

  • install an existing exporter from the exporter Store
  • link a GitHub repository containing an exporter package
Exporter Store

Install an exporter from the store

  1. Navigate to Code Integration → Store
  2. Locate the exporter you would like to install
  3. Click the Install button
  4. The exporter will be installed and now available to use.


To see a list of all installed exporters, navigate to Code Integration → Installed.

Install an exporter from a repository

In Supernova, exporters are backed by repositories. You can also install an exporter from a private repository.

Follow these steps to install an exporter you've created or someone else's exporter from a GitHub, GitLab or Bitbucket repository.

  1. Navigate to Code Integration → Store.
  2. Click + New exporter.
  3. Enter a valid repository URL from either GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket or Azure DevOps.
  4. Click Confirm to install the exporter.
  5. If you're not authorized yet, you'll be prompted to manage your platform authorization in settings. If the platform can't be found, a dropdown will appear in the dialog where you can select the correct one.

Install an exporter from a branch or subdirectory
