- <ModelName>_AssetsTK will be included in the Model sent to MDrivenServer when you Upload the model
- Once on the server MDriven Turnkey will unpack the folder in AppData under the name ExtractForExpansionInSite_AssetsTK
- Once extracted to ExtractForExpansionInSite_AssetsTK the MDriven Turnkey application will try and mirror the contents of the following folders from ExtractForExpansionInSite_AssetsTK to AppRoot:
If your modlr filename is products.azurewebsites.net__MDrivenServerA0.modlr you should name your folder products.azurewebsites.net__MDrivenServerA0_AssetsTK
Note! You replace the file extension with _AssetsTK.
|Folder name||Special purpose|
|EXT_LateBoundAssembly||When extending your turnkey app with c# built logic your assemblies goes here|
|EXT_Scripts||Use this to add you of js files Add AppWideAngularScriptIncludes.html here and contents will be added to scripts in app - this is needed to load things before AngularJS compile as you need when creating directives.|
|Content||This is where the tkusercss.css should be. If you have it, it will be included in your page|
|Views\EXT_OverridePages||add your cshtml files here either name it as a ViewModel to override the whole page - or put a matching name as you have in Content Override viewmodel column in the AngularUIOverride tagged value value|
|other names||You may have any folder depth with any content with special assets and plugins - they will be replicated on server side|
|.||Files put in the root of _AssetsTK will be mirrored to application root. This is where you put a favicon.png that shows in browser tab|
This enables you to merge your own css, styles and c# assemblies for c# developed logic.
Deleting files that was copied but should be removed
To delete a file by this file replication you must append .DELETE as an extension. The file copying logic will look for /xxx/something.ext and delete it when ever it finds a file /xxx/something.ext.DELETE in the replicated data.
Practical issues seen
When using the AssetsTK file copy strategy you may have issues with file creation permissions on the server. Check that the IIS_IUSRS has sufficient rights in App_Data.
You may find a file called ExtractForExpansionInSite.log in App_Data. This will explain further issues with file creation:
Problem expanding AssetsTK:Access to the path 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\MTTK\App_Data\..\Content\Something.png' is denied.
If this is the case - fix it by giving access to the IIS user.
