How to unexclude node_modules in 2016.2.2? Follow
Since upgrading to WebStorm 2016.2.2, it's auto-excluding my node_modules folder. Note that this folder contains my source code, it's not generated by `npm install` or similar. The effect is now I can't find files with shift+shift or cmd-shift-o. If I repeat the shortcut (like cmd-shift-o, cmd-shift-o), that toggles "Include non-project files", and then it can find my files.
It doesn't seem possible to "unexclude" my node_modules under Settings -> Directories, my node_modules folder is red, and has Excluded selected, and it's not possible to unselect.
I can double shortcut for now, but is there a better resolution? Thanks!

So just in case someone else runs into the problem I was having with Sass libraries like Bourbon where you need to add its stylesheets directory as a resource root:
You also need to add the directory as a Library:
I had the same problem, but I figured out that the node_modules was ignored in Settings > Editor > File Types. Removing it from the ignored files did the trick.
Here I detailed in other post: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/203372590/comments/115000133390
in my case, it was the .ignore plugin (https://github.com/hsz/idea-gitignore), which does per definition:
"Hide ignored files and directories in the project tree view"
You saved my day!
