According to the tutorials, in the local author instance, in crx/de, if I navigate to /apps/wknd/components I should be able to create new components by right clicking. I can create folders or nodes, but thats it. The other options have always been missing. I am logged in as admin/admin, and I deployed wknd using mvn clean install -PautoInstallSinglePackage. I have also tried creating a folder under /apps/wknd/components and creating under that, but same problem.
Im using the latest could SDK downloaded from Adobe yesterday, and M1 Mac.
As mentioned by @asutosh_jena the option to create components directly in crx/de is available via Create Node option. But if you want to directly integrate your IDE with crx/de than you can use Vault Configuration in IntellijIdea or Eclipse whichever you are using. These are basically plug-ins which integrates your IDE directly with crx and you dont have to worry about moving content from one place to another.
