"Ignore patterns" on read-only folders

Hello, how do I use the “ignore patterns” feature on a folder I don’t have write permissions on? Since I can’t write the .stignore file, I don’t know how to do it.

Hi!

I’m pretty sure this is currently impossible. The .stfolder marker name can be configured, as the FAQ states, but the .stignore file is hard-coded.

Seems like a valid use-case though. So you could open a feature request on GitHub and with a little luck someone will implement a similar option for the ignore patterns file. One major problem is that if you can’t write an .stignore file, then you likely cannot write your patterns to another file in the folder either. So it will have to live outside the folder in question.

The feature request is already there :wink:.
