Brackets File Tree Exclude

NOTE: THIS IS UNMAINTAINED AS I HAVE MOVED AWAY FROM BRACKETS TO VSCODE AND DO NOT NEED TO EXCLUDE THINGS LIKE THIS

Brackets extension for excluding folders and files from the file tree, find in files, and quick open.

This means that the files will be completely invisible to Brackets what will greatly improve overall performance of the editor.

This is great for cache folders, distribution/build folders and files, and package manager folders like node_modules and bower_components.

Based on works of:

How to install

Install via the Brackets extension manager.

Use brackets-npm-registry

Configure

Exclusions are defined globally by default inside the Brackets preferences file (Debug > Open preferences file).

Append or edit your configuration options there. (See below for example of defaults)

Or on a per project basis:

Create a .brackets.json in project root (it may already exist) and add your settings there.

Note

Project config completely redefine exclusion rules from global config.

Configuration defaults

{
    "mitchellsimoens.file-tree-exclude.excludeList": [
        ".git(?!ignore)",
        "dist",
        "bower_components",
        "node_modules"
    ]
}

How it Matches

It takes the excludeList array (either the default or if .brackets.json file exists in the project root) and turns each string into a regular expression. So if a string is "node_modules" then it will turn it into new RegExp("node_modules"). You can specify expressions as strings also. So if a string is "/foo/i", then it will turn it into new RegExp("foo", "i").

The resulting expressions are then matched against the realtive path fo the file in the tree.
