I am a software developer somewhere in California. I've been in a lot of interesting back corners of the software world, from web spiders to machine learning to GIS to web frontend development. My willingness to deal with C++'s head-punching, ridiculous stupidity has taken me to interesting places, as has my ability to be super productive in Python.

I've also touched JVM languages, .Net languages, you name it. If it's somewhat mainstream I probably have used it enough to have formed an opinion on it.

My singular hobby is editing this profile. When I'm not answering questions or writing code I vacuum seal myself in a plastic container to lengthen my shelf life.

comment Is there a site with templates for Arcpy where I can just fill in the blanks?
This will fall down on models like this which use iterators. Export to Python Script doesn't do a 1:1 functional match of the model to a Python script. It's broken and as far as I know Esri doesn't plan on fixing it. You're safer copying individual tools as Python snippets from the results window and piecing together a script that way.

I'm guessing it's a dumb compromise so that APRX files act more like MXD files

I think the whole point of creating a folder is to create a singular place for project data; a tool that would delete any linked data could end in disaster, especially if it's shared across projects

That is absolutely fantastic news that does not surprise me! Just use Explorer, the thing designed to manage files and folders, to delete folders.

Do you want a more complicated response than "yes?" Isn't just deleting the folder in explorer a desirable thing?
