TextMate : Show Files Beginning With Dot

| Comments

I was checking some files related to Sinatra yesterday and noticed that TextMate is not showing files which are started with . character. Like .autotest .rspec . After a quick googling, found Wil Linssen’s web site .

Just go to >

Preferences > Advanced > Folder References and change the pattern to:

!(/\.(?!.)[^/]*|\.(tmproj|o|pyc)|/Icon\r|/svn-commit(\.[2-9])?\.tmp)$

After making this, I noticed that, .DS_Store files are shown too! I did a quick fix to this, just changed to:

!(/\.(?!.)[^/]*|\.(tmproj|o|pyc|DS_Store)|/Icon\r|/svn-commit(\.[2-9])?\.tmp)$
