GoLand 2018.2 Help

File Nesting Dialog

The dialog box opens when you click File Nesting on the context menu of the title bar in the Project tool window.

Use this dialog to configure presentation of files with the same names but different suffixes. GoLand can present such file groups as plain structures or show parent files as folders (nests) with their child files inside. To configure file nesting, set correspondence between the suffixes of parent files and the suffixes of the child files.

GoLand provides a set of predefined rules. You can edit these rules as well as define your own custom ones.

Item Description
Show files with the same names as nested
  • When the checkbox is selected, GoLand recognizes children files based on the patterns from the list and shows them grouped under the corresponding parents. Compare the presentation of the above TypeScript example with file nesting enabled:
    A typescript file leftpad.ts with a compiled JavaScript file leftpad.js         and a generated sourcemap file leftpad.js.map shown as a nest
  • When the checkbox is cleared, GoLand shows parents and children at the same level.
Add (Add icon) Click this button to add a new row and specify the "parent" file suffix and the matching "child" file suffix.
Remove (Delete icon) Click this button to remove the selected rule from the list.
Reset to Default Click this button to discard all your custom patterns and reload the default rules.
