Opening multiple Nengo windows

Is there a way to run multiple Nengo windows (i.e. the localhost sites) side by side?

  • Opening another document via Nengo’s directory panel closes the current script.
  • Trying to open another document (via the panel) and clicking Open link in a new Tab opens the current script in a new tab.
  • Typing nengo into the command line in a new Terminal window (i.e. not the one where Nengo is currently running) returns an error.

Entering this nengo --port 9999 into a new Terminal window seems to create a new (and separate) Nengo server within which a separate window can be opened.

Hi @kenan, and welcome to the Nengo forums! :smiley:

I can confirm that if you want to run multiple NengoGUI instances, you’ll need to create each one with a separate port number. NengoGUI runs using a webserver and a browser. Separate Nengo instances need separate web servers, and each need their own port so that they don’t clash with each other.

Thank you Xuan
