Managing Repository Groups

When running recipes in Moderne, it's a good idea to filter them to run on a select group of repositories you care about so that you get relevant results more quickly. In filtering these recipes, many people have found that they wanted to create multiple groups of repositories that they can easily switch between. Both of these issues can be solved by using repository groups.
To help you get started with repository groups, in this guide you will learn:

Additional information

Repository groups are saved locally in your browser. This means that no one else in your organization or team will be able to see the groups you've created. Likewise, if you switch to a different computer or browser, your groups will not exist there.
