Custom hidden files

Hey, I want to add certain files to be hidden in the file tree.
In navigator-filter, inside toggleHiddenFiles, current . files are being shown/hidden on toggle hidden files click.
I added the regex for the files that I want to hide, but nothing is getting hidden.
Am I missing something?

Hi, docs says: Configure glob patterns for excluding files and folders. - https://github.com/eclipse-theia/theia/blob/98f12a9fcc3a43c2b5d224e186f871e66a1e11b7/packages/filesystem/src/browser/filesystem-preferences.ts#L41-L46 Regex are not supported.

Hi Anton, I tried with glob pattern. It doesn’t reflect in the web app for browser example. However when I set it in the preference section of the web app and add the glob pattern there, it works there. Am I missing something?

Please file a bug, maybe it gets ignored somehow. Please explain how to reproduce though, more details is better.
