Load jscad directory into web jscad
I've created a directory containing a main.js file and a package.json that I can drag and drop onto the web site openjscad.xyz. It works fine.
I can drop just the .js file on the webpage and it works also, but not quite the way I want it to.
I can also run the webpage by passing in the .js file on the URL line, and while it works, the title on the page is a cryptic number. I seem to be unable to pass in just the directory as I can when I drag and drop. Is this possible?
How would I run with mutliple .js or .jscad files in one directory by passing them on the URL line?
Is this possible? If not, how can I get the name of the .js file to appear on the webpage instead of number that appears?
Yes, this becomes quite limiting if one has to have users download, unzip, and drag & drop. Kind of defeats the purpose of projects. Also you'd have to deal with updates.
Very cumbersome for non-tech users.
It would be nice if you could include directories or even zip files in the URL.

I'm not sure that a jscad project can be fired from an URL. It would be great because for the moment lots of users don't use the projects that I share because it seems too complex for them to 1°) upload it (as a .zip) 2°) unzip it into a directory 3°) open JSCAD, click "load jscad project" and choose this directory 4°) And put the files they want to use into the directory then reload the project. So I mostly only share .jscad directly but for my kind of designs that relay on 3d files, it's too complex for non dev users.

@steve-howe Sorry. A project can be loaded via the LOAD button, or drag-n-drop. The best is via drag and drop due to differences in browser functionality.
Nope. Even renaming to index.js doesn't help.
It just doesn't like loading a directory from the URL line.
Drag and Drop works, but I can't load it by using # or ?URI=
I just get Error: fetch error: 500 Internal Server Error.
It doesn't seem to work with a directory.

@steve-howe there's a small section about projects in the User Guide. This might help.

Try naming the main file inside the directory
