We provide two project templates that you can use to start creating your app:


  1. Classic Website
  2. Node.js


If you know the type of project that you would like to create, click here to get started! Or keep reading to learn more about the Classic Website and Node.js templates.


Classic Website


classic website  

The Classic Website template is your starting point for creating a static website that includes an index.html page and static HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Just start typing and your work will be live on the internet!  Static websites enjoy unlimited uptime too!  This means that your website stays on 24/7 without using your Project Hours

An existing project will be identified by Glitch as a static site if it does not contain one of the following files:

  • package.json
  • requirements.txt
  • glitch.json







If you are looking to build a full-stack JavaScript application, choose the Node.js template.  This template includes both front-end and back-end code using the popular Express Node.js application framework.



Here are some other ways to get started on Glitch...
