How do I archive a project on Glitch?

Glitch lets you control which of your projects are currently able to run via the Archive feature.


Here are some things to keep in mind when archiving apps:

  • Only the Project Owner can archive and un-archive the project.
  • Archive can be used like a "delete project" feature to safely deactivate projects and remove them from view without permanently removing the code from Glitch. (If you would like to permanently delete a project, please send a message to Glitch Support and our team will do this for you.)


When you archive a project:

  • The app will not run.
  • You will be the only one who can access it.
  • You are the only one who can un-archive it.
  • Others will not see the app on Glitch or be able to access it.


When you un-archive a project:

  • The app will run if it is opened.
  • The project will be viewable by all project members.
  • If the project is public, others will be able to view the project's code on Glitch.
  • If the project is private, non-project members will be able to view the app. However, they will not have the ability to view the project code on Glitch.


You can archive from either:

  • The Project Editor view
  • Your Profile page
  • Your Dashboard


From within the Project Editor:

  1. Click on the name of the project to reveal the Project Options menu.
  2. Scroll down until you see the 'Archive This Project' button and give it a click.
  3. A confirmation will pop up asking you if this is the project you want to archive. If it is, go ahead and click 'OK'.


Directly from your Profile page:

  1. Directly above the name of the project you would like to archive, you'll see an arrow pointing down. Give it a click.
  2. Click the 'Archive This Project' button.


On Your Dashboard:

  1. Go to your Dashboard.
  2. Select the project that you would like to archive.
  3. At the top of the page, click the 'Archive' button.
  4. The project now moves to the Archived view on your Dashboard.


Un-Archiving a Project

  1. Go to your Profile page.
  2. Scroll down the page until you see the 'View Archived Projects' button and click it. This will take you to your list of archived apps on Dashboard.
  3. From the Archived view of Your Projects dashboard, select the app you want to reactivate.
  4. Click the 'Reactivate' button.
