Ignore folder in SubVersion
Posted on Monday February 21, 2011 by Eric Potvin
If you use a template engine, such as Smarty, you might find annoying to delete the compiled files every time you check which files are modified.
eric@unbuntu:/var/www/my_project/trunk$ svn status M template/index.html ? template/templates_c/%%3C^3C7^3C7803F8%%index.html.php
To avoid that situation, you simply need to ignore the folder in your repository by using the following command:
svn propset svn:ignore "*" template/templates_c
Next time you will perform an
svn statusthe compiled templates will be ignored.
