I found a few similar questions to this, but they're either quite outdated or slightly different.
Basically, I have some folders in my projects which I want to be able to browse to and edit the contained files, but I don't want them showing up in "Go To Anything". Third-party libraries are a good example — I might want to look at the code, but only rarely.
As I understand it, we have three mechanisms for exclusion: folder_exclude_patterns and file_exclude_patterns, which remove items from "Go To Anything" *and the sidebar, and binary_file_patterns which removes items only from "Go To Anything".
The trouble is, binary_file_patterns only works for files, not folders. So is there anything like binary_folder_patterns available?
*None of these options do the job. I think the OP was satisfied with hiding files.
