Private Folders not being copied during build


one of the folders in my private folder is not being copied to the .meteor/local/build/programs/server/assets/app folder
at build time.

Any idea what could be causing this?

meteor version


Is the directory empty? If so it won’t be included. If not, does your directory or any of the files within that directory use any special characters in their names?


@hwillson the folder contains a .gitkeep as it is used to store generated pdfs. i have another folder which also only contains a .gitkeep file as it content is generated at runtime and that gets copied over at build time.


When is it generated? Is it static content or is it changing while running?


i managed to fix this by placing a file in the folder instead of a .gitkeep file
