Directory Structure
Every Amber app is generated with a variety of default files and folders that make up the structure of the application. When you run amber new to create your application, you will see that the Amber CLI creates the entire directory structure for the application for you to use. The table below details out the variety of files and folders created in the generation process as well as their purpose.
