Hi! First of all, thanks for developing hugo so that dumbs like me can make useful webs. I’m editing my files with Kate, which creates swap dotfiles .whatever.md.kate-swp. When running hugo server, if one of those is changed the web is rebuilt and reloaded by the browser. This is kind of inconvenient. I thought I had read dotfiles would be ignored. I’ve also tried ignoreFiles = [ “\.kate-swp$” ] in config.toml to no avail. Any hints?
Did you also try two slashes (so
"\\.kate-swp$")? That’s something that the docs example itself uses.
Sorry, yeah, that’s what I actually tried to no avail.
Ah okay, too bad that didn’t work either.
I searched a bit more but didn’t find why it doesn’t work for you, but there is a similar open issue on GitHub: hugo server does not ignore files specified in the ignoreFiles option.
