Adding file-based resources to your projects

Adding dynamic web service interfaces to publish our sensor data is not sufficient. To complete the web interface, we also want to publish some static resources, in the form of files, to provide a simple web page interface the user can view in a browser. To do this, we add a HttpFolderResource resource to our web server. It publishes all files available in a folder and its subfolders.

In UWP (Universal Windows Platform) applications, content files to be used can be stored under the Assets project folder. They should be marked as content files, but not be copied to the output directory. When deploying the application, these asset files will be deployed into the corresponding assets folder on the device. To find this folder at runtime, we can do as follows: create a Root subfolder in the Assets folder, to keep our web content files in, and put a favicon.ico file there, to provide our website with an icon. We can get the path of the file as follows...
