As we know it is best to hide database files in a folder named .data to insure they aren’t copied along with the project. That folder isn’t imported from GitHub either which tends to mean that we can’t store a populated db file and expect to host it on Glitch. So I’m asking what do people tend to do? Obviously scripts can be written to populate the db and that isn’t totally unreasonable but it isn’t always practical.
Is there a way to upload a file directly to a known folder (.data in this case) to Glitch? I can clearly rename it to data but that means it is no longer hidden). What do devs tend to do in this case?
