Change Display Name

Is it currently possible to change your display name? Note, I’m not meaning the Org name. Just the name that shows up in the upstream client on my mac.

Not yet, but I’d like to build this feature! I made an issue.

Thanks! In the meanwhile, if I haven’t made any projects or connected anything yet, can I just delete my profile somehow and start over?

Yes. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Make sure that Upstream isn’t running.
  2. Open Radicle Link’s config folder. On Linux it’s located at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/radicle-link/active_profile or ~/.config/radicle-link/active_profile if XDG_CONFIG_HOME isn’t set. I’m not sure where it’s located on macOS.
  3. (Optional) Delete your active profile:
    a. Open the file named active_profile (it’s a plain text file).
    b. There should be a single line with a code on it . Delete the folder who’s name matches the code.
  4. Delete the file named active_profile

Now, when you start Upstream again, it will walk you through the process of creating a new profile. You can also use this technique to use multiple different profiles on the same computer. Just close out of Upstream, and edit active_profile.
