How to hide files from project folder


#1

I was wondering how I could hide unwanted files from my project folders for example .class files, .DS_Store, .Jar ect. , I have tried adding them in under Preferences -> Settings -> Core Settings -> Ignored Names but the files still appear.
Any help would be appreciated
Cheers


#2

I have figured out how to hide the .DS files but I can still now hide the .class files

Ignored names is the way to do it if you aren’t working with a Git repository. Make sure that the Tree View (I assume that’s what you mean by “project folder”) setting “Hide Ignored Names” is set:


Atom hiding files/folders without my premission
#4

OK I have enabled that but my .class files are still showing up in the tree view


#5

What do you have your “Ignored Names” set to? Did you read the part about them being glob patterns?


#6

I didn’t read the part about glob patterns, thank you very much for helping


#7

I had the same problem and fixed it by change “.class” into “*.class” in ignore names.


#8

Also I already enabled hide name in tree view setting. The same process of leedohm’s answer

Thank you, this was a huge help.

Just to add to this, I know it was mentioned but it took me a little bit because I never adjusted these settings, the Glob Patterns and Ignored Names are in the Settings --> Core --> about halfway down the list. Screen shot below of that.

This might a suggestionfor the Tree View, but it might be nice to have that and the Hide VCS options a function and then maybe do a keymap to them. I don’t often switch between projects where I need to see hidden files, but once in a while I will need to open a project and see those things. Its not too much of a hassle for me, but I am not sure about others, and it might be nice to toggle that in other ways.

Thank you again.
