Pod Builder is an easy way to create SkySpark extensions of your Axon functions, Views, and Apps, to share with others.

Pod Builder is an SkySpark extension itself and requires SkySpark 3.0.23 or later.

Pod Builder is FREE to download and evaluate. All features are fully unlocked for the creation and continued modification of your first POD!

Note for security considerations, Pod Builder is only available to SkySpark users with Super User (SU) privileges.

Why use Pod Builder?

Perhaps you need to copy multiple functions between SkySpark installations? Or maybe you need to share some amazing Axon views with your team?

Pod Builder saves you much time and effort by "compiling" your amazing code into a valid SkySpark extension. Now you can easily create your own SkySpark extensions and distribute your amazing code in a simple and convenient way.

How it works

Use Pod Builder to select Axon Functions, Views, Applications, and Tag definitions to be included in your extension. You may also add other files, such as images, icons, or help documentation. Pod Builder then wraps up all your content into a correctly formatted POD file, along with appropriate meta and display information for SkySpark.

Using Pod Builder ensures SkySpark will recognise your POD as a valid extension, making it easy to create, distribute, and install your extension on any SkySpark project!

Note: Make sure to install Pod Builder into the same SkySpark project as your custom Axon code, so Pod Builder can reference the correct Folio database!

StackHub integration

Pod Builder provides convenient StackHub integration. Simply enter your StackHub account details to upload your POD directly to your StackHub account. Now YOUR SkySpark extension will be available and listed by the SkySpark Install Manager.

By default, pods uploaded to StackHub are publically available to everyone. Pods may be kept private to your organisation for as little as $25 USD / month. See StackHub subscriptions for details


Pod Builder is a commercial product and requires a licence for commercial use and to enable all features.

Pod Builder Licences are tied to a SkySpark installation / host ID. This means a separate licence will need to be purchased for each SkySpark server Pod Builder is installed on. You will need to enter your SkySpark licence ID when purchasing, see Where is my SkyArc Installation ID? for details.

Pod Builder licences expire after 1 year and a further licence will need to be purchased for conintued use.

Purchased licences are available from the StackHub Licences page and should be downloaded to the /var/lic/ directory of your SkySpark installation.

Minor updates and bug fixes to Pod Builder may be provided free of charge, but major updates will require a new licence to be purchased.

For support and comments, please email -------------------------.

Evaluation mode

Without a valid licence, Pod Builder enters into a fully featured evaluation mode where all features are enabled for the creation of a single pod.

Evaluation mode is designed for developers to try out Pod Builder to assess its suitability for purpose.

To manage and create multiple pods, a valid licence may be purchased from StackHub.
