Issues using filters with duplicacy web edition

#1

I have some issues to use filters with duplicacy web edition.
I used the include command to add a common filter file with this line added in the exclusion file :

@c:\Users\userxxxx.duplicacy-web\filters\filters

In the file c:\Users\userxxxx.duplicacy-web\filters\filters, I have this line (with many others) to exclude cache files

e:(?i).cache.
e:(?i).cache.*

Full file is here
filters.txt (1.7 KB)

But despite this, I still have these files backed up

As the filter file I’m using is a standard file, I suppose the error isn’t in the file itself, but on the way I used to include it in my config ?


Make it possible to include a file in the filters file
#2

I could be wrong, but I don’t think filter includes (referencing another filters file) were a thing (yet).

You may have to add the filters to each repository.

My suggestion would be to use the web UI to create a placeholder filter for each repo - those filter files seem to be named .duplicacy-web\filters\localhost\0 etc. - then find and edit that file with your favourite text editor.


#3

I understood from this topic : Make it possible to include a file in the filters file that this is now possible to include a file of inclusion/exclusion.
Did someone already use this ?


#4

The PR Filter extension by a-s-z-home · Pull Request #514 · gilbertchen/duplicacy · GitHub has not been merged so this feature is not available in the current release.


#5

Is this feature already planned in the roadmap ?
