Exclude .sass-cache files from Sublime Search [Snippet]

Posted August 22, 2014 in Tutorials+Tips

Ah, this morning has been one of those “refine your build process and not actually work on anything” mornings. One important improvement, however, was excluding those .sass-cache files from the Sublime search.

Isn’t it the worst when you Cmd+T to search for _base.scss and get a million .sass-cache/12783uqhwlkaksjd/_base.scssc‘s? Yes, it is!

Add this to Sublime > Preferences > Settings – User to get rid of those and some others:

"folder_exclude_patterns": [".svn", ".git", ".hg", "CVS", ".sass-cache", "node_modules"]

Done! Don’t your eyes feel better now?

Thanks to Eric Binnion for the tip.
