Private Folders not being copied during build


#1

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 1.3.5.1


#2

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?


#3

@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.


#4

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


#5

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