Option to specify ignored files in MagicSync for Flywheel

I’ve seen this feature request a LOT of times here over the past years, but I want to do it once again, because they all don’t get any attention from Local.

Please add a feature to either specify files to ignore using MagicSync, or even better to utilise the .ftpignore file. There’s already a default list with files that get ignores, so it should be really easy to add some user specified files to this. I never want to upload my Sass files, webpack config, source folder, etc.

Thank you for reconsidering.

Some of the earlier requests:

Hi @tomstuurlui - welcome to the Local community!

Are you hosting with Flywheel or with WP Engine?

For WP Engine, see the files that are auto-excluded here: Local Connect - Local

If you wish to add additional files, and are using WP Engine, you can create a .wpe-pull-ignore file in your /app/public/ directory, and Local will ignore any files/paths provided there. This is mentioned in the first post you linked.

Does that solve the issue you’re having?

I’m using Flywheel!

Okay, that is good to know! Thanks. Those ignore files are a WP Engine only feature, but something to evaluate on Flywheel.

I’m going to update the title here to make it Flywheel-specific so that other people can find it more easily.
