How to make a new project with a exported project .tar.gz


I exported a project and want to remake it into a new project. How would I accomplish this?


As far as I know, you can’t from the UI.

However, you could upload the .tar.gz file to somewhere else (e.g. GitHub), download it with wget from the command line and then unarchive it with tar -xzf myfile.tar.gz. Once this is done, you’ll need to run refresh in the command line too, of course, so that your changes will sync across to the UI.


The download feature isn’t really meant for creating another Glitch project - you can remix the original to do that much more easily. It’s more for moving your project to your own server or making a backup.
