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

Posted August 22, 2014 in Web Development


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.
