I must be misunderstanding how the "Directories" management feature works, but could someone please shed some light on this for me? I couldn't find enough information in the documentation.
Here's what my understanding of this system is:
- You go to Settings -> Project -> Directories
- You mark any directories that should have NO actions (deployment being one of them) apply to them. IE, "in project libraries" (like node modules, or sass caches).
- If you do things (like deploy the project to a web server), these directories marked as "Excluded" should NOT be affected (and should not be deployed).
But the problem is, they are still being deployed when I deploy (whether it be upload or sync) the entire project.
Now, I know that deployment configuration has options for excluded paths, but shouldn't the paths being marked as "Excluded" as a global project setting do the same?
What am I missing here?
