Overview of Files and Directories

The main app directory contains the following files and directories. Those marked with a trailing slash are directories.

Name Description
build-aux/ Helper scripts for the build system.
com.example.first_application.json Manifest file for deployment.
data/ Data files for the installed application.
meson.build The main build file.
src/ Source files for the application.

The first four of these are concerned with building and packaging the application, or contain data files that are not part of the application itself.

The src directory is where we will start to explore how the application is put together.
