Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Learning Polymer.
- [Instructor] I have provided a set of exercise files to accompany this course. You can see that I've copied my Exercise Files folder to the desktop, but you can place it anywhere on your computer that you like. So, let's take a look inside. At the top level of the folder, you can see that there are other folders that correspond to the various lessons in the course. There's also a folder named Bower Components, which contains the various Polymer web components that are used in the course and a file named Bower.json, which keeps track of important component information.
There's also a shared style sheet file that I'll be using within my examples. You can also see that several of the lesson folders are named with _Start and _Finished prefixes. The Start version of the folder contains the starting point of the code for that lesson. The Finished version of the folder contains the finished code for that particular example. During the course, I'll be using the Start version of each example to build towards the Finished version of the code. However, you can use these exercise files however you want.
If you want to use the Start version of the code to work along with me towards the Finished version, then that's great. If you want to fire up the Finished version of the code, and around in the debugger, or try making your own changes, well, that's great too. In either case, copy the Exercise Files folder to where you want it on your system and then you're ready to go.
