So, I wanted to play around with the Github options, and exported my project to a repo. I then cloned the repo to my computer, did some development locally and pushed it back up to Github.
I reimported the project from Github, and realised that the .env had disappeared. Fine - I don’t expect all of the potential conflicts from importing/exporting projects here there and everywhere should be resolved automatically, the ‘export’/‘import’ is a one way operation.
So. I recreated my .env file, and put back in my secrets, and did some coding. When I came back to my project later, the project ran (it would error out if the .env file was missing), but the .env file was no longer visible in the file list on the left.
I recreated the .env file a couple of times, and the same thing keeps happening.
Any ideas on what might be causing this?
