How can I get Eclipse to show .* files?


@ If you're using Eclipse PDT, this is done by opening up the PHP explorer view

I just spent about half an hour looking for the little arrow, until I actually looked up what the 'PHP Explorer' view is. Here is a screenshot:

Package Explorer -> Customize View -> Filters -> uncheck .* resources
Package Explorer -> View Menu -> Filters -> uncheck .* resources

@Edward sadly your pertinent comment was hidden. To answer your question, it is no longer possible for a long time. But to everyone wanting to exclude .* but a few .*, you have to use the "Package Explorer" instead of the deprecated "Project Explorer". I hope my comment will make things clearer for some people. The whole thread gets us confused until we figure out we may be using the wrong Eclipse View from the start ! The "Project Explorer" also has a "Filters..." menu, with far less functionalities.

Didn't even see that arrow there. Thanks!

In the package explorer, in the upper right corner of the view, there is a little down arrow. Tool tip will say view menu. From that menu, select filters

Is it somehow possible to only include the file named .gitignore but exclude all other files starting with .?

Well spotted! I've been searching for a while now and didn't find it... Thanks for sharing this information

With Eclipse Kepler and OS X this is a bit different:

I searched forever for this, so I'm sorta answering my own question here. I'm sure someone else will have the same problem too, so I hope this helps someone else as well.

If you're using Eclipse PDT, this is done by opening up the PHP explorer view, then clicking the upside-down triangle in the top-right of that window. A context window appears, and the filters option is available there. Clicking the Filters menu option opens a new window, where .* files can be unchecked, thus allowing the editing of .htaccess files.

In your package explorer, pull down the menu and select "Filters ...". You can adjust what types of files are shown/hidden there.

Looking at my Red Hat Developer Studio (approximately Eclipse 3.2), I see that the top item in the list is ".* resources" and it is excluded by default.

If using Zend Studio, same arrow, go to RSE view, click on the downward facing arrow, hit preferences, and then check show hidden files.

In my case, I wanted to see .htaccess files, but not all the other .* resources. In Zend Studio for Eclipse, in PHP Explorer (not Remote System Explorer), click the downward facing arrow (next to the left/right arrows). Choose Filters. Uncheck .* resources In the "Name filter patterns" area, type the filenames you want to ignore. I used: .svn, .cvs, .DS_Store, .buildpath, .project
