There is a new file from the WebPI/WebMatrix teams at Microsoft, tbex.xml, to "significantly reduce friction for new WordPress users on Windows." Points 1 and 3 are helpful, but point 2 in particular is really awesome. Their explanations are below.
This XML file has the following benefits:
- It contains a set of resources that helps beginners get started with WordPress. These links show up on in WebMatrix after WordPress is installed. We’ve included some sample links but feel free to change them, you can link to any content that you want to surface for new folks.
- It has a set of files/folders that will be marked as “read-only” in WebMatrix and display a warning if people try to edit, delete or rename a core application file or folder. This will reduce the number of folks who accidentally break WordPress.
- It supports adding code completion tips for WordPress-specific functions, which will help developers extend WordPress. We created a sample by looking at the WordPress schema, it’s in the <CodeCompletion> section.
The file should be placed in the root of the zip file, alongside the manifest.xml and parameters.xml.
