Workbench for Mac and Linux

I have many users asking for mac version of workbench for local development and a linux for version for managing scheduled data loads.  We are mainly a linux shop so spinning windows VM's for this is not the best solution for us.

Please give me a thumbs up or mark as solution if this helped thanks! @anotherdatageek

  • Thank you for your suggestion.  This has been submitted to our engineering team through ticket # DOMO-37797

  • @alexpeay can you please take a look at this?

  • We are currently focused on the .Net version of Workbench. We are exploring options for migrating to a more portable solution, but we have not added this work to the immediate roadmap.

  • I know what I'm about to suggest is not the solution, but it IS a workaround and it is a suggestion for those that need a quick solution.

     

    I use MAC and sometimes need to use windows (for Domo Workbench) like in this case.

     

    I would recommend to use AWS, there is a service called Workspace which is a Desktop in the cloud.

     

    You can access it from any device, including mobile. Spinning it up is simple and using it as a development environment or for those end users that need an environment with higher resources is a cheap way to go about.

     

    Let me know if it did work for you.

  • +1 would be useful to have support for this for Mac. Critical for password protecting sensitive data.

    Is there any progress on if this is happening or not?

  • Yes, having a mac and linux version would be ideal.  This would avoid a lot of custom scripting.
