Feature Request: Import from Files

As a visualization author, I want to take a program that’s working on my local file system and “import” or “upload” it to VizHub, where the files should be interpreted as source code.

This is the exact opposite of the “export” feature, which generates a .zip file of the code content (plus an additional package.json file).

Yeah, sounds like a great idea, and this way we could probably upload all sorts of files like pictures and videos right?

That would be amazing to have working.

I’m tracking that idea separately here: Feature Request: Local file as img src

Ideally these two features could work in conjunction, allowing you to upload folders or .zip files that include both text and image files (and perhaps other binary formats, not sure).
