    Directory/Graph Naming Standards

    Wanted to get feedback of some of the best practices out there. From what I'm currently contemplating is the following...

    My typical graph naming is by (Process Category_Descriptor 1-& or 2_Dynamo Version).dyn
    sample:Export_Doors-Instance Parameters_v2.3.dyn

    Folder Structure is ["(Alphnumeric)_Process Category" -> "Revit Category" -> "Version"]

    I found that instead of the Dynamo version it’s more convenient to specify the Revit version.
    So far I use this scheme: [DisciplineCode]-[Description]-[Author]-[RevitYearXX]

    Folder Structure: RevitYear \ Dynamo \ Discipline \ *.dyn

    Mine are a mess, but I try to organize them something along these lines:

    What does it work on -- What is the general function -- What is it doing -- additional descriptive

    Manage-SubCategory-HideClearances
    Manage-CreateWorksets
    Sheets-CreateFromLevel
    Views-SetCropBoundaryLineweight
    Views-Delete-EmptyElevationMarkers

    It works to a point, but definitely needs some adjustments. Part of the struggle I have with naming them is that I'm not in Dynamo a lot, so how I think about naming them changes depending on the day... I really need to setup some sub-folders. I think that would help a bit.

    Regarding naming and sharing graphs, Orkestra is looking pretty darn promising. You are able to add meta data to the graphs to describe what they do and all that.. Video: http://a360.co/3blcwDp About: https://www.orkestra.online/

    Just got off of a call with Mostafa about Orkestra. It is looking pretty sweet!

    Orkestra, hmmm... no inputs. Can data-shapes handle all the typical inputs? Is there anything missing? I looking into Dyno for a similar function a while ago but never moved forward on it.

    From what I hear, it has a tight integration with Data-Shapes for UI and inputs.
