Excluding message catalog build files

lingui extract command creates temporary message catalogs per each source file. Also, lingui compile command generates compiled message catalogs from source ones. All these files can be safely ignored from VCS and linters.

Can be safely ignored because these files must be created every time you deploy to production, so we encourage to use CI methods to automatize this process. If you commit it you will produce conflicts, which somebody will need to solve, in this minimized and transpired (basically unreadable to human) file. In summary, please, always compile your catalogs.

Replace locales in paths below with your custom localeDir from configuration.

  • locales/_build/
  • locales/**/*.js


Add following lines to your .gitignore:



Specify which directories to lint explicitly or add following lines to your .eslintignore:
