Description pmaselkowski 2015-11-09 12:58:46 UTC
When using git there are ignored folders defined in `.gitignore`.

It would be nice (optional) feature to automatically add this patterns to "Ignored Folders" project tab.

Current Behavior:
Currently we have to add ignored folders to `.gitignore` and then repeatedly in project properties.

Expected Behavior:
Assume option to import `.gitignore` is active.
When creating project containing `.gitignore` - folders from `.gitignore` are added to project's "Ignored Folders".

Use case:

1. Create project folder from pre-defined setup, for instance with .gitignore
2. Create NB project with existing sources

Current behavior:
3. Install packages. NB scans it all and/or starts uploading

3. Install packages. Folders for packages are ignored because they are in `.gitignore`.
