How do we debug both client and server for a project? Here you hint that you actually need to 2 projects: one for server, turning off code analysis, and another for the client using just the client folder. It would be nice to be able to do both in one project but i see the problems. A full example in the docs/videos would be really helpful..

Hi Johnny_reilly, good question.

You can always use create from existing to create a project from a folder, but the project file itself is a requirement for visual studio and also allows us to include helpful metadata (whether or not to analyze a directory, etc - most IDEs/text editors include a project file for this very purpose - they just hide it a little better). that said, at some point we'd like to change things up so that the project does feel more similar to the folder/file experience you might expect. Please upvote the issues!

This is to change the project file to be more "transparent".

There's also another issue to directly open a folder without requiring the user to take steps to create the solution/project.

Great to see Visual Studio offering Node tooling. Is there a chance that we could have a way to use the tooling without needing to use project files? It feels that it goes a little against the grain to have to use these and I wonder if they are truly needed. Is it a requirement of Visual Studio perhaps? Is packages.json and the file system not enough for VS?
