[Bug] Hidden files not showing (with preceding .dot)

#1

Hi there,
I’d like to mention that some files that are downloaded from github are missing from the file system. Files like .env and anything with a dot preceding the file name (including .gitignore) are also missing.
Creating a file with a dot in the name disappears.

Edit:
Looks like the file is there just not displayed. Creating a file with the same name shows an error that file already exists.

Hi PeterKMT :wave:

That’s the intended behaviour but it’s causing more confusion than helping users. We’ll give more control to users making hidden files visible on the file manager :slight_smile:

Ah, that would explain a lot hah. Honestly I think hidden files should be shown since we’re talking files in a source code folder. Devs are not normal people in this regard and these files are used quite extensively for some things :smile:. The fact that my file disappears but it’s still there is a bit confusing.

You guys did a helluva job with this IDE! Is it open-sourced anywhere so that somebody like myself could help out with a pull request or two?

The app isn’t open source but keep your recommendations coming :slight_smile:

Hi PeterKMT :wave:

play.js 1.7.0 now lets you see hidden files in the Files Navigator.

Thanks for your feedback :slight_smile:
