Open the project with the directory in the preview

Hi, I think this feature would be useful. So, when you enter a directory (example: about.html) in the preview tab, it opens that directory when you open it in a new tab ( using the preview menu or using Shift-Ctrl-R ). It would save a lot of time and would make previewing easier overall.


Hi @nobody - I just want to make sure I understand what your idea so I can best represent it to the team - are you saying that if you’re, for example, previewing /about/index.html in the in-window preview and you then click the open in new window, the window goes to /about/index.html instead of the index?

Yes, that was exactly what I was wanting to say.

Awesome, thanks, I’ll pass this on to the rest of the team!


Hi! It’s been a week since you replied. Did they accept the idea? if yes, could you give an estimate on when it would be implemented on Glitch?

Hi there, I don’t have an estimate on when it would be implemented and don’t know when/if i will - but it’s on the list of feedback and ideas from the community for us to consider in the future.
