Your first Tabby Space​

In this section, you will learn how to deploy a Tabby Space and use it for yourself or your organization.

Deploy Tabby on Spaces​

You can deploy Tabby on Spaces with just a few clicks:

You need to define the Owner (your personal account or an organization), a Space name, and the Visibility. To secure the api endpoint, we're configuring the visibility as Private.

Duplicate Space


If you want to customize the title, emojis, and colors of your space, go to "Files and Versions" and edit the metadata of your file.

You’ll see the Building status and once it becomes Running your space is ready to go. If you don’t see the Tabby swagger UI, try refreshing the page.

  1. Install the VSCode Extension.
  2. Open the file located at ~/.tabby-client/agent/config.toml. Uncomment both the [server] section and the [server.requestHeaders] section.
    • Set the endpoint to the Direct URL you found in the previous step, which should look something like

Agent Config

  1. You'll notice a βœ“ icon indicating a successful connection. Tabby Connected

  2. You've complete the setup, now enjoy tabing!

Code Completion

You can also utilize Tabby extensions in other IDEs, such as JetBrains.
