To launch the Vitis Unified IDE, do the following:
  1. Use the following command to load the Vitis software platform environment.
    source <Vitis_Installation_Directory>/
  2. Use the following command to launch the next generation Vitis IDE.
    vitis -w <workspace>

    where <workspace> indicates a folder to hold all of the contents of your design project. The workspace is used to group together the source and data files that make up a design, or multiple designs, and stores the configuration of the tool for that workspace.

For other supported launch modes, see Launch Options.

Note: Before launching the Vitis unified IDE, you can set up other environmental settings to ensure that the tool can pick up these settings. For example, you can set up Xilinx Runtime (XRT) for building and running data center acceleration applications:
source <XRT_Install_Path>/
You can set up the platform repository path with the following example:
export PLATFORM_REPO_PATHS=<platform_path>
