File/Directory name which should be ignored while scanning through directories. This can be used to exclude some folder such as npm node_modules folder or python venv folder if the directory present in config contains such folder it will help to significantly increase performance.
Whether to scan hidden folder(i.e. folder which start with dot notation) or not
Whether to scan target folder. Currently, it searches for environment variable
