Ask DN: How do you organize your home directory?

over 6 years ago from , Frontend Developer and Designer

Just curious how everyone organizes their home directory to efficiently manage various kinds of "stuff"? (e.g. side projects, PSDs, git repos, miscellaneous downloads, etc.)

    Basically I have 3 main folders, I guess those are self-explanatory:

    1. Admin
    2. Projects
    3. Docs & Resources

    The project folder again is separated in these sections:

    1. Own Projects
    2. Partnership Projects
    3. Clients
    4. Agencies & Freelancers

    Every single project folder in this structure has more or less an identical structure:

    • Admin
    • Project Infos
    • Notes & Meetings
    • Brainstorming
    • Design (if needed)
    • Code (if needed, synced with Github)
    • Consulting (if needed)
    • Contracts & Billing

    I hope this helps ;-)

    I separate each project in a folder with these subfolders:

    MyProduct

    0-Exports (all exported .png files)

    1-Inputs (documents like specs, flows etc.)

    2-Files (.psd, .ai)

    • DZN-MyProduct-A-Signup.psd
    • DZN-MyProduct-A-Login.psd
    • DZN-MyProduct-B-Onboarding.psd
    • DZN-MyProduct-Z-Error_Banner.psd #### 3-Code
    • css
    • img
    • js

    I use the same naming convention for every project (DZN is for Design, WFM for Wireframe etc.). The letters are for the different sections of the project (usually A to B are the login/signup/landingpage/onboarding/loading. C is the core etc..)
