Exclude directories on add wildcard?
« on: March 02, 2008, 09:00:34 am »
Just activated my new license for se, and are playing around some more after the trial.

I'm currently using the auto folder -> directory view. And have used "Add wildcard" recursive on an existing subversion project. My problem is that I keep getting all the .svn folder to show up in the directory view. Is there a way to hide or exclude those?

I tried entering all sorts of matching stuff in the "exclude filespecs" box, but it only seems to appy to files(hence the name, but worth a shot).

You can try to put ".svn/"(without quotes) in Exlude filespecs.

And if you're on Windows, use "*\.svn\*" (without the quotes).

Alternatively, if you have Windows Explorer set to "Do not show hidden files and folders", the .svn folders should not appear in the project.

I tried a variety of exclusions, but since the .svn is a folder, it does not seem to be evaluated.

I use linux, I have deactivated the noatime flag on the filesystem a long time ago, but for others that might be a way to make it faster?

OK, I'm getting a little confused here. Now you're talking about "a way to make it faster", but your original post is about seeing .svn folders in the directory view.

I'm using GNU/Linux too. I have put ".svn/" (without the quotes) in "Exclude filespecs" when I've used wildcards to define my project. I don't see .svn directories in the directory view (Projects tool window, Auto Folder > Directory View).

Have you tried that, and are you still seeing the .svn folders?

Ahh..well... sorry for beeing confusing. I've been trying several things and mixed it up a bit.

I know tested to add .svn/ to excluded filespecs, and it did actually work, but i had to add it for every wildcard inclusion i made. Thought I did that the first time, but must have missed something. Thanks a lot for giving good hints. :)
