Filters for Android projects?


  • Is it planned to add filtering capabilities (instead of folders only) to Android packaging projects (*) in Visual Studio 2015 in a future update?

    For almost all other project types, filters may be added that allow including sources from directories outside the Visual Studio solution directory. It's much more convenient and flexible to put project files, assets and source files into separate directories - this is pretty much standard. Without that feature, we'll end up creating copies of everything which is completely unnecessary and very hard to manage in the end.

    (*) referring to the Android projects containing Java source files, assets (res, src, assets folders etc.) and so on
