Hide .gitignore files in Atom Tree view

I have been using Atom as my coding editor for almost a year now. As a Python developer, the *.pyc files often bugged me whenever I ran my code.

Adding those files in the .gitgnore file did not prevent them to show up in the tree view and hiding them from the Atom menus was not as much intuitive as I would guess at first, so I had to dig a little further.

To hide all files included in the .gitignore file:

atom_hide_3

Image1: find the ‘tree-view’ package and press Settings to enter the preferences of the package.

atom_hide_1

Image2: Scroll down to see the preference options.

atom_hide_2

Image3: Check the “Hide VCS ignored files” checkbox.

You may now see your tree view free of unwanted files.

I hope it helps.

Cheers!
