Purpose of the ".net core" subfolder in OD application folder

Post by mowgli » Fri Jul 31, 2020 8:09 am

Searched for the answer but not finding info on it. Can anyone tell me the purpose of the .net core subfolder within the application folder in the source code? I know what the Sparks3D subfolder right next to it is for, but not the .net core folder or whether it's really necessary to include it.

It is utilized for some internal .NET core projects. I believe you'll be fine if you choose to exclude it, I renamed it and did a build and run without issue. Leaving it is find as well.

Thanks for the reply, Patrick. Now in v20.2 and v20.3 in RequiredDlls there is also a .NET Standard folder which looks like it might also fit that category.

Yes, they're related. It's safe to leave them in your source files.
