I’d like to request the addition of negation patterns to the
The negation patterns can allow a user to not ignore a path that was previously marked as ignored (effectively whitelisting it).
Example: Let’s say you want to only sync files
app1/app.exe to a seafile library, but
app1/ can contain an arbitrary amount of unwanted files generated by
app1/app.exe on runtime, with exclusion patterns you could solve this problem by adding this to
seafile-ignore.txt on that library:
app1/* !app1/config.xml !app1/app.exe
This could be achieved by creating symbolic links from
app1/ and then running
/home/user/app1/app.exe from there. Sadly for Windows users, Seafile desktop does not read symbolic links to files correctly, making that impossible.
