Special Folders You Won't See in ASP.NET 4.0

Friday, October 2, 2009

App_Data, App_Code, App_Themes, and App_GlobalResources – we’ve come to love them over the years.

I was hoping the team could add a few more “special” folders to ASP.NET, but I don't think these will make it ...

App_Store – drop in an xml file with product descriptions and … presto! Instant e-commerce!

App_etizers – content you serve customers before they get to the main part of the site. 

App_liances – will work with Azure, because cloud computing needs appliances.

App_endix – I'm not sure what this would do, actually. Perhaps I should remove it.

App_etizers is just too funny!

What about these... :)

App_alling - Code that you are ashamed of

App_aratus - Code that is useful, but you don't really know what it does

App_endectomy - Code that will sooner than later be removed surgically

App_lause - Code that everyone gets excited about

App_lejacks - Sugar coated code that just makes you hyper

App_lesauce - Code that is meant for young coders who can't quite handle meaty code

App_rehensive - Code that you know works, but you are scared if anyone where to ever see it

That was lame, but it made laugh.

The sad thing is, the original App_Data, App_Code, App_Themes, and App_GlobalResources are just as lame as the joke examples. The first thing I do when creating a new web app is delete them.

App_Engine - Python version of site for hosting on GAE.

Let's not forget these

App_arent: it should be obvious what this does
App_roach: If you think it's where bugs are kept, you're getting closer
App_roximate: This folder gets you close to where you want to be
App_roval: It's what all websites seek from their strict parents.

Okay...I think I've run this one into the ground

The true revolution will start when they introduce:
~/bin/bada/bing
~/bin/bada/boom
Where all the designer generated search and error handling code compiles to.
