glitch.new is a super-handy shortcut that makes it faster and easier to create apps instantly in your browser.

 

You can use it to create a new full stack React or Eleventy app, remix any Glitch app, or even import a GitHub repo, just by starting the URL with glitch.new

 

To see all the glitch.new shortcut options, go to our glitch.new webpage.  We suggest bookmarking this page so you have it at your fingertips. 

 

Here’s how glitch.new works:

In your web browser’s address bar, type glitch.new/ followed by the type of app that you want to start working on.

 

You can use these URLs to instantly remix one of our popular Glitch starter projects:

glitch.new/website
gets you started with a website template that includes HTML, CSS and JavaScript
 

glitch.new/node
lets you quickly spin up a Node app built with Fastify
 

glitch.new/react
is the template you can use to take advantage of one of the web’s most popular static site generators, React!
 

glitch.new/eleventy
will let you use the static site generator, Eleventy to build your site.
 

glitch.new/sqlite
instantly creates a node.js app that uses a persistent SQLite database.

 

 

Or, you can…

 

Create a shortcut for any public project on glitch by using the glitch.new URL followed by the project name, in this format:

  • glitch.new/[~project-name]

 

For example, if you wanted to create a Discord bot using our bot starter template, you would type the following URL into the address bar:

  • glitch.new/~starter-discord

 

It doesn’t have to be an official Glitch app either. You can do this with any public app on Glitch!

 

 

Or, you can…

 

Quickly import a GitHub repo into a Glitch project by putting glitch.new in front of any GitHub repo URL, using this format:

  • glitch.new/github/[github username]/[github repo name]

 

For example, if you wanted to import our friendly-words repo from GitHub, you would enter the following URL into the browser address bar:

  • glitch.new/github/glitchdotcom/friendly-words

 

 

The repo will be imported and running on Glitch in a flash!

 

And don't forget, you can see all of these options by going to our glitch.new webpage.
