Hey Adam, great post and thanks for the Glitch shout-out!

In case you missed it, you can import Github repos into Glitch - just pick "Import from Github" from the new project dropdown.

It would be cool for us to have a drag-and-drop-zip feature too, unfortunately that's not the case yet. In the meantime, I often drag the zip into the editor, find the url of it in the assets section, then open the terminal and run wget [url of the asset] and finally run unzip [name of asset just downloaded].

Hope that helps :D And if you have any other ideas that would make the app creation process easier on Glitch, let me know!

Thanks Jenn! I'm sorry it took me so long to respond. I love Glitch and think it's a great tool, and I'll be leaning on it more (or at least trying to diversify my tooling a bit) going forward. And I'll definitely ping you with ideas, but you guys are doing a great job!
