accelerate initial download / multiple file downloads

I'm starting to use PhpStorm and at the moment, I'm setting up different projects. I excluded already a lot of files but there are still a ton of files which need to be downloaded. Is there a way to accelerate the initial download of a project?

Best regards

1) Exclude even more folders with not-so relevant files (e.g. files that can be downloaded later: product images, image source files etc)

2) Zip all you files on server, download zip file, extract them locally in project folder -- much much faster.

3) Create project folder, download files there using any FTP client of your choice (which may be able to download files in multiple parallel sessions), then in PhpStorm just use "File | Open Directory" and finish the rest of configuration manually.
