What is .netlify folder with state.json file

One day a folder showed up in my project and I don’t know what it is. It’s called .netlify and contains a state.json file with my siteId in it. What is this for and how did it get there? Just curious.


Hi @vcamp

This directory/file is created by Netlify CLI when a local project is linked to a Netlify site.
