Move things from the asset


Maybe I’m dumb, but I have the files in the asset, and I want to move them here:

Why does it automatically move to “assets”?? I want it to be in a real folder, in this case, fonts/


Hi @JasperWorld, welcome to the Glitch forum!

When you upload certain filetypes to your project they are placed in the assets drawer instead of in the file tree. If you want them to appear in your project you can use the project’s console and a command like wget along with the URL that’s available on the uploaded asset to download a local copy and store it wherever you’d like. Or you can use the url in your project just like you would use a url for a file in your project. It’s important to keep in mind that if you copy it locally that file will take up space in your project, which it does not do if it’s in the assets drawer.

Hope this helps!
