How to switch between ignition and ignition edge gateway

I am using ignition for a project, and ignition edge for another project. Is there an easy way to switch between ignition and ignition edge (ex: gateway, designer)?

No, not in any supported way. I would recommend looking into Docker or virtual machines to host two entirely separate gateways.


Installing Ignition directly in your workstation is certainly convenient, and fine for training, but the use of localhost hides certain kinds of problems and offers “features” that aren’t possible with a normal server install.

Your workstation should have the various kinds of launchers present, maybe with multiple versions. But no gateway on localhost. Local gateways should always be in VMs or containers, and on a subnet with IP addresses distinct from localhost.
