    Use of proxies for remote file loading:

    If you want the capability, just like the official site, to load remote projects/files directly from the web based user interface, but without the hassle with CORS issues, then you can use a proxy file (see & remote.php):

    This is a server side script that does the following

    • caches the remote file locally on the server
    • returns the local path to the downloaded file for local use by the web UI

    use and path of the proxy can be set by:

    • changing the proxyUrl value in src/ui/index.js
    • since this is hardcoded , if you do not use the provided dev server, rebuild your main file (See Contributing)
