You can also refer to the examples in the Clarity examples to view the source code.

The maximum project size allowed for imports is 50 MB.

If you have an existing project but don't have clarity contracts in it, you can still clone the project and add clarity contracts by referring to our clarity contract examples.

Your cloned project is now displayed on the projects page.

After your import, your project shows a list of Clarity contracts ending with .clar extension, as shown below.
