Possible to exclude files from build?


After reading Habitat 0.13.0 Released, I tried to set HAB_CONFIG_EXCLUDE="*.sw?,*~,*.bak,*.tar.gz" before entering the studio. But the resulting build just keeps adding all the packages I’ve been exporting. Is there a way to exclude them from a build similar to how a .gitignore and .dockerignore file work?


Hi @andyshinn!

HAB_CONFIG_EXCLUDE was added in 0.17.0. I would recommend that you upgrade to take advantage of that environment variable.


Thanks for the reply! I was actually using 0.29.0 (I forgot to mention). Is there an example using this somewhere? Maybe I am setting it incorrectly.
