  • src - Main projects (the product code)
  • tests - Test projects
  • docs - Documentation stuff, markdown files, help files etc.
  • samples (optional) - Sample projects
  • lib - Things that can NEVER exist in a nuget package
  • artifacts - Build outputs go here. Doing a build.cmd/build.sh generates artifacts here (nupkgs, dlls, pdbs, etc.)
  • packages - NuGet packages
  • build - Build customizations (custom msbuild files/psake/fake/albacore/etc) scripts
  • build.cmd - Bootstrap the build for windows
  • build.sh - Bootstrap the build for *nix
  • global.json - ASP.NET vNext only

There's probably more things that go in the ignore file.

  • Update: Added docs folder
  • Added README.md and LICENSE - Critical if you're OSS, if not ignore it
  • Renamed test to tests
  • Added lib for things that CANNOT exist in nuget packages
  • Removed NuGet.config for people using packet :)
  • Added global.json for ASP.NET vnext
  • Added .editorconfig file in the root (x-plat IDE settings)
  • Added NuGet.config back because people were confused about it missing
