Whats in your new project folder?

  • # March 21, 2009 at 1:25 am

    I’m trying to put together a blank starting folder to use for new projects and was looking for suggestions on what I should include in this folder.

    As it stands now, I have a blank HTML file with links to a style.css, a JavaScript folder, and Google’s jQuery lib link.

    My CSS file has a basic reset using Eric Meyers reset as a starting point and changing as needed, along with some basic toolbox type classes I have been using.

    My JavaScript folder is empty and scripts get added as needed.

    Lastly I have a empty images folder.

    Just wondering what you use as a basic starting point for a new project.

    well it all depends on what you are going to do for the site….

    but basically:
    main directory
    |


    Images directory
    |


    Script directory
    |
    |


    index.html
    |


    style.css

    but as your project grows so might your directories, pages, css sheets, scripts

    I’m pretty similar to you guys:

      index.html
      images
      js
      css[/list:u]

      sometimes if it’s a PHP site:

      includes
      db-interaction[/list:u]

      occasionally:

      downloads[/list:u]

      I really really try to keep the home directory as clean as I can. I despise it when I start having to scroll in Coda to see everything at the root level.

    index.html
    images
    script
    style

    PHP
    index.php
    images
    script
    style

    In CodeIgniter, it’s all stored within the view. Same with RoR.

    EDIT
    Same as Chris. I hate to have to scroll my root in E.
