Weird import behavior for large GH repos


#1

I’ve noticed that when you try to import a large-ish github repo (I tested https://github.com/modulesio/zeo), the UX is really weird.

It will jump to the glitch default container contents, but seems to import silently in the background. Then after a while of waiting an indeterminate period of time if you refresh you’ll see the project did actually get imported.

I know there’s no progress indicator yet, but it’s kind of jarring and makes it hard to point people to the import link to hack on the code from the Github repo. They rightfully wouldn’t know what’s going on.

Is there a plan to add import progress indicators? Or some other workaround?

Thanks for the report, I’ll make sure adding a progress indicator is on our upcoming features/fixes :slight_smile:
