Why can't I see some of my files in the file tree?

This can happen for a few reasons:

  • If you have a .gitignore file, any files specified by its rules are not shown in the editor.
  • Files within a hidden folder, specified by a name prefaced with '.', aren't shown in the editor.
  • Binary files aren't shown in the file tree either. Instead, we recommend you upload them to the assets store.

However, in all of these scenarios the files still exist on your server, so you can refer to them programmatically.
