You can start with an empty project or a template. Selecting a template will install demo content into your Bucket and provide an open source code repository for you to either download locally or deploy to a hosting provider.

Once you have added projects to your account, you will see your Projects available on the Projects home view.

Adding Buckets

A project can have as many Buckets as you need. A common strategy for Buckets is to make them separate environments such as Production, Staging, Testing, etc.
