angular-cli: Discussion: Too many config files in the root folder

@johnpapa raised a concern he got from people who saw how many files the CLI is generating.

So he offered to move the CLI files into an .angular-cli folder so at least we’ll have a little less noise.

Points raised:

The good parts

  • The root folder will be a little less messy
  • We can set an example for other projects to clean up our dirty dirty root folder 😃

The bad parts

  • People are used to stuff being in the root folder
  • Unless we can convince all of the other projects to keep their file in a config folder this isn’t gonna change soon

We’ll love to hear more feedback from the community, so feel free to add your input and vote in favor or not.

Yes, to be clear I meant just the angular cli specific files go in the .cli folder (or whatever it is called)

BTW … idea came from @spboyer “Beardy”
