Magic files reference?


#1

I’m new to Glitch; last week, I used it to make a web frontend to a python tool, which was totally neat and surprisingly easy.

The main question I have is: there seem to be a bunch of files (and options in those files) that make a lot of magic things happen in Glitch. There’s glitch.json and watch.json; it looks as though the stuff in a requirements.txt gets installed by pip, and then it tries to run your app by invoking start.sh.

Is there any documentation on what files Glitch looks for, what options they might contain (like, what all can go in a glitch.json file?) and what overrides what?

Thanks!

Currently not in our official docs since is a bit experimental and our official docs are based on Node.js, but I’ll definitely talk to the team about it

There is some useful info on this thread
