It would be amazing if WebIDE would let you, optionally, enter the URL of a web site to import into a new project. This would let me, for example, pull in my ancient personal web site and use WebIDE to maintain it going forward, with minimal work on my part.

Ideally this would also provide the option to pick a folder on your computer to import, in addition to using a URL.

This would be great - I've wanted to be able to open a small project on my computer to run it in a device for testing, debugging, etc.  But I don't already have a manifest.webapp file in it.  Once I add one it all works fine, but I was wondering if there was a way to remove that requirement to make it as easy as possible for people wanting to try out this tooling on existing projects.  Maybe we could somehow generate a temporary manifest based on the contents / name of a folder?

WebIDE is slated for removal, so it's unlikely we'll make a change at the moment.
