Description juneit 2012-06-01 10:40:00 UTC
It would be great if there was an option to hide the dialog during the last step of creating a new project with remote source files (the step is called Confirmation).

During this step remote files are downloaded from the FTP server to the local directory and Netbeans is unusable. If there was a button called "Hide" so I can work on another project while it's downloading - this would be really useful.

Well, frankly, I do not think that this would be a major enhancement - how often do you create a project from a remote server? Feel free to provide more comments so we can reevaluate it.

This would be a major enhancement: Netbeans is totaly unusable while downloading!

Well, frankly, it's 2013 and a LOT of software is centralized on remote servers. Cloud applications have become the de facto enterprise environment. I start projects from remote servers almost every day, often times for very very large projects (500MB - 2GB) and think it would be a HUGE improvement on the IDE.
Comment 4 Tomas Mysik 2013-09-26 04:51:23 UTC
Well, workaround is very easy - create a new PHP project, add proper Remote Run Configuration (server, upload-on-save) and download all sources - it will happen on background. BTW the wizard does exactly this, nothing more.

I have a problem with Netbeans PHP IDE 7.4 Remote project. 
When I create a remote project and there is a step to unselect folders that shouldn't be downloaded it downloads them anyway? In my case this is a huge images folder. In 7.3 version it have worked in a correct way, but in 7.4 it's not working. 
Is it a bug or I have missed some option in IDE?
Comment 6 Tomas Mysik 2014-01-02 07:03:23 UTC Hi, you are facing issue #238223 which is already fixed in the development version of NetBeans. Sorry for inconveniences.
