Description patkoscsaba 2013-08-01 09:04:26 UTC
I would like to be able to add inexistent folders to "Ignored Folders". Here is my use case: a build system will create tons of files in folders called "_build" and "_install". These folders are not on my repository, they do not usually exists. They are present only for time being of the build process of the application.

I can not add them while the build is in progress, because so many files are generated that NetBeans can't handle them and just freezes until the indexing is done or the files are gone again.

So, it would be nice to be able to add folders that do not exist to the list of "Ignored Folders".

In case someone need this, in dev version there are .nbignore files plugin.
