Description Tomas Mysik 2014-09-03 10:16:39 UTC
It would be great if we could have a ProjectFactory that would be able to convert known project directory to a NetBeans project.

E.g. if directory contains package.json file, it would be enough to simply open such directory as a project and a NB project (HTML5 project in this case) would be created automatically on the first opening. It means that user would not need to create such project using our New Project wizard.

It would be great if we could add more such "convertors" easily, to be able to support more known project directories if needed.

Thanks a lot.
