Set Directories to Ignore on Code Import
« on: June 04, 2007, 02:34:55 pm »
I searched on "ignore import" and "ignore directory", and didn't see this suggestion anywhere.

I just got through importing the source tree for my project. As the project includes several .xml and .xsd files, I have the settings set to import those as well.

Unfortunately, there are some of those in bin and obj directories, and many .xml files in directories that are the results of running unit tests. I am now engaged in deleting these from my EA project!

I wish there were some way of signalling to EA not to import certain files and/or directories. At the very least, something like CVS's .cvsignore file would be ok.

Absolutely!

Preferably this will also propagate somehow to the API, so we don't import trees there either.

No, you can't have it!

This just came up again - I almost entered the same question as seven years ago, but decided to search first.

In this case, I wanted to include .xml and .config files as artifacts. The problem is that many such files exist in obj and  bin folders. I don't want those!

So it didn't make it after 7 years - when midnight was still active - and Paolo. Time goes by.
