Is it possible to somehow have ohloh ignore some files? I'm thinking of a .ohlohignore file or something. Unless there's already a way?
This a fairly common request, and it's high on our to-do list. We'd like to do something like you've suggested, and use something like a robots.txt file to specify ignored directories.
I'd prefer not to have to add a proprietary tag to the repository just for Ohloh.
It would be better if there was some way of specifying exclusions (by wildcard or regex) from the analysis.
I could have used this for the MapGuide and FDO projects, each of which maintains large chunks of external libraries (at fixed revisions) in their repositories. Of course, these would be better as external references, but...
I'd like to share some additional thoughts on this future feature.
I think we'll start by adding the ability to edit the 'exclusion' directories directly from Ohloh. This should address JBirch's concerns, but would also address the cases where the repository is not directly editable by the project maintainers. We could then build an additional feature to parse/understand a specific ohloh.txt directives. Any further idea/concerns are appreciated!
one or the other way i would be fine with it. Just hope there will be something. Expecially PHP project tend to use alot of frameworks and libraries now which we wish to exclude. Thank you for your great work
Good to hear that this feature is planned :). I'll keep quiet and leave you to it then!
Any schedule on this greatly anticipated feature? ;-)
This would also help very much with Audacity. In our case I'd be happy to check in an Ohloh-specific file to our repository that would tell Ohloh to ignore certain files or entire subdirectory trees. It's similar to our .cvsignore files.
Right now the main issue with Audacity is that Ohloh is counting third-party libraries that we have forked and include as part of our own CVS tree, but they aren't really our own code.
Did this ever go anywhere? I just ran into this very same issue and Google led me here.
It's still on our to-do list. We get a lot of requests for this, but it hasn't happened yet.
