Welcome to the Glitch Forums. To create a folder you have to make a file. Kinda like this, go to new file and type
How can I download archives and use them?
Do you mean zip archives?
yes that’s right, there that would put a zip archive in the folder, or that you could use them from the assets folder
I also noticed that assets are not a folder and from it I can’t call a file in a script. What to do?
The assets folder is just a virtual folder in the project and doesn’t exist locally in the project. The only way to solve this problem is to create a local folder and uploading assets to that. To do this:
Go to the assets folder in your project and select the image you want to upload locally to your Glitch project. Click on the ‘copy url’ button. This will copy an image url like
https://cdn.glitch.com/68ece3d5-980b-4d94-b09a-6ea0770ea2cf%2Fdonut_white.png?v=1572257738465to your clipboard.
Create a new assets folder by typing
mkdir assetsand hit enter.
cd assetsand hit enter to move into the assets folder
wgetand then paste the image url you copied previously into the console, so you see something like
wget https://cdn.glitch.com/68ece3d5-980b-4d94-b09a-6ea0770ea2cf%2Fdonut_white.png?v=1572257738465and hit enter. That’ll import that image to your assets folder. Note that it’ll be imported with the name (the random bunch of letters and number in the image URL after the
68ece3d5-980b-4d94-b09a-6ea0770ea2cf%2Fdonut_white.png?v=1572257738465. To make it easier to deal with you’ll want to rename it. To do so, type
mv /app/assets/68ece3d5-980b-4d94-b09a-6ea0770ea2cf%2Fdonut_white.png?v=1572257738465 /app/assets/donut_white.pngand hit enter.
refreshin the console to update your project directory and the new assets folder shows up in the project.
Repeat steps 1 and 5 for each image you want to upload. Be sure to change the name of the file to the relevant one in step 4.
To call the file in your script, you’ll need to use the path:
__dirname + '/assets/donut_white.png'
Note that the
donut_white.png is just an example.
thank you very much. I’ll try it now
