How can I download or backup my Glitch project?

You can download a compressed file of your entire Glitch project, fully preserved, from within the project editor.


Download Project


To download your project:

  1. Open the project editor.
  2. Go to the lower left corner of the editor and click Tools.
  3. Click Git, Import and Export.
  4. Click Download Project.
  5. If your browser asks you to confirm or save, click OK.


The format of the project download is a Gzip compressed Tar archive with a .tgz extension.  This type of file can be opened with any file-archiving program such as WinZip or 7-zip.


When you unzip the file, you'll see an app folder that contains your project in the same structure that you'd see in the project editor.


You can also export your project to GitHub. Click here to learn how!
