What is the purpose of .local folder, which gets created when creating new Process?


#1

When I create a new Process, I get the below files/folders

.local
Main.xaml
project.json
  1. What is the purpose of .local folder?
  2. Should I include it into my version control?

I have seen project getting published even after .local folder so it is not really necessary. You can give it a try and exclude from version control list

@libinv Our SVN/TFS version control in Studio is also ignoring this folder. It is a local working folder

Hi @libinv

I believe it is a cache of all available packages in your system. It probably speeds things up a bit :slight_smile:
