The Run mode of a project is where you can take your generated code for a spin. Tangram Pro™ uses the Dockerfile you provide when configuring your build to create a container image and push that image to the Tangram Pro™ container registry. During a Run, Tangram Pro™ uses those images to run containers and display your container's execution via system logs, so that you can quickly and effortlessly watch your code in action.
