Can we upload folders online?ūüė•

Hi there!ūüĎčūüŹĽ I fear i may be asking an already existing question but I can't find any answers for this particular problem... Basically, is it possible to upload a folder as it is online? When making games files we use like audio and images can easily become big, or just have a lot of small files (use a spritesheet boys and girls) That's usually not a problem for me, What IS a big problem for me though is when it comes time to move that game online... When I want to share a game on SL, to host the files I always just used Dropbox I'll upload each file to a folder, the copy each link of each file and paste that accordingly in the code....you can see how that can become tedious very quickly...:( Is there a way to upload just the folder online and still have the link use the actual names of files in folder? E.g Before: "assets/audio/fart.wav" Online: "https://hosting_serviceABC/assets/audio/fart.wav" Or something similar....i really don't want to started charging names for ALL my files :(

Try zipping them. Use tar, 7zip, or whatever

Vachila64‚ėē Git is your friend and as others said look at GitHub/Gitlab hosting platforms for public or private repositories!

SAN yeah they do, but when you copy the link to a file in the folder it'll still be just a bunch of random looking letters, like "https://www.dropbox.com/s/8e7ubgyrozqxkp1/Notif%20Motif%20xD.wav?dl=0" (wanna listen?)

I think dropbox gives the option of create folder. You must try once.

No, i was under the impression that you wanted to make the files available for download. I really like kodi and i noticed most/all of the video repositories appear in a "directory" like website. A main page with links that leads to other pages with links that finally leads to a stream or whatever. It can be done, but I don't know enough to know how.
