I have a very large media folder (100+GB) for my Magento based site. Opening my project folder immediately freezes Sublime 3 (Build 3143 and earlier). I'm running on Ubuntu 15.10. I have added the following to my Preferences file:
"index_exclude_patterns": ["www/source/media/*", "node_moduels/*", "vendor/*"],
The status bar indicates "Adding folder ~/my/project..."
As long as I don't add my project folder everything works. But I do need to work on this project, and removing the media folder would be counter-productive to the work on hand.
I have reviewed other similar issues, but don't see a clear solution.
