Excluding folders from indexing in Sublime
bower_components are a pain in the neck because every time that we need to find something in the project the content of these folders will be used in the search.
Sublime offers 2 settings to hide these files from the index. First of all, open the User Preferences (Preferences -> Settings – User):
binary_file_patterns: This option excludes files from the index but keep them in the sidebar.
folder_exclude_patterns: This option excludes files from the index and sidebar. This is why, for example, you don't see the
.gitfolder in a project.
moreMy final setting is:
"binary_file_patterns": [ "*.jpg", "*.jpeg", "*.png", "*.gif", "*.ttf", "*.tga", "*.dds", "*.ico", "*.eot", "*.pdf", "*.swf", "*.jar", "*.zip", "node_modules/**", "bower_components/**", "tmp/**" ]
I also decided to add it the tmp folder, which is used by all kind of frameworks.
