In all My Artisan Web tutorials, we often refer to two key computer terms that are essential to know and understand: Folders and Directories.
In computer lingo, a directory is unique place in a computer or website's file system, into which individual files can reside. Learn more about directories.
Directories are often visually presented using a small icon of a manilla folder. Because a computer file system resembles a paper file cabinet system, individual files are often presented with an icon of a sheet of paper, and thus a file directory is often shown like a manilla file into which many individual files can be placed.
In our tutorials, My Artisan Web tries to refer to a directory as being a directory/folder or folder/directory. The words are interchangeable.
