Bug: Binary / compiled files are displayed

Reported by zachriggle | December 24th, 2010 @ 07:44 AM

What I did

Open a folder with a bunch of .py and .pyc files in it.

What I expected to happen

Only the .py files are visible.

What actually happened

All of the .pyc files were also visible.

Notes

Taking a look at a few .gitignore files should give you an idea of the types of files that can be safely filtered out. Adding in functionality to modify this filter list would be a good idea.

To get you started:

  • *.pyc
  • *.o
  • .*.swp (vim)
  • *.tmp
  • *~ (emacs)

    • State changed from “new” to “hold”
    • Tag set to sidebar

    Sidebar is a quick hack and due for a total refactoring. Please ignore the sidebar and it's current useless state.

    However, I will not flag this as invalid since it might be relevant in a near future, but instead put the ticket on hold.
