PlasticSCM ignore.conf: globally ignoring certain file types, but allowing them recursively in a subdirectory

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/19

I needed this for a project there 3rdParty libraries could have .dcu and .obj files (to either speed up building, or because not all source code was supplied), but those files should not be present nowhere else in the repository.

This is an ignore.conf template for that:

*.obj
*.dcu

!/3rdParty/**/*.dcu
!/3rdParty/**/*.obj

The ! exclamation mark undoes the ignore according to the pattern following it.

Note the starting slashes after the !: they indicate the root directory of the repository and are mandatory.

Based on (warning, the JavaScript on these pages are extremely CPU intensive!):
