I’ve worked on several projects where I needed to check the .data/ folder to make sure a file was being written correctly. Easy enough with the console+ls, but it would have been nice to be able to see things in the editor.
Now I’m working on a project intended for less experienced users, allowing for additional customization in a config/ folder hidden by my .gitignore file. When I add optional files into that config/ folder I can see them, but since the folder is hidden via .gitignore it becomes invisible on refresh. I don’t want these files as part of a fork/remix, and I don’t want them syncing to github — but I do want them to be easily accessed by users if they decide to create them.
In both of these situations a “show hidden files and folders” toggle or button would be super helpful, and I can imagine there are other use cases where this is true. The editor is brilliant, and I’d love to be able to use it will all files, whether they are visible or not.
