Exclude a folder from SVN checkout on Aptana

asked Feb 12, 2010 by gong

I have a site developed with cakePHP. I have it under source control with svn. I develop it with the Aptana Studio, both in Linux and in windows.

there are some directories like app/tmp which as the name says holds temporary data. Is it possible to omit the folder for being checked by aptana studio where to be commited? I right-clicked on the folder and applied a svn propert svn-ignore: *

But still every time I want to commit those files/folders appear in my list of changed files.

I'm not completely sure, but I think that if you set an svn-ignore property on a folder you will have to commit that folder before it will start working.

First, if the folder is already in svn, you should remove it from source control (using 'svn delete').

Then you should set the svn:ignore (note the colon instead of the dash) property on the parent folder to include the folder name that you want to ignore.

so for app\tmp, set svn:ignore on 'app' to 'tmp'

jeroenh add :

if the folder is already in svn : Switch to SVN Repositories and delete what you want. Switch to Project Explorer and Team > Update to Version. And then do what jeroenh said
