"File/New/Project From Existing Code..." improvements


When using File/New/Project From Existing Code... to move an older Python project into PTVS the menu command includes all *.pyc files found in the target folder. They don't need to be (and probably shouldn't be) part of the solution. The Project From Existing Code command should ignore those files.

should ignore *.pyc files
Should support multiple project types (e.g. new Django project)

Fixed for the next release -
We were doing the right thing for subdirs, but VS was controllilng the addition of files in the top-level folder. I've added a small hack which prevents VS from adding files.

I'm reopening this bug because the fix caused issue -- we have to revert the current fix and try something else, or decide we can't fix it.

I would also add that it should ignore .svn folders and related files

Changed this significantly -

I've assigned this to myself to add support for:
  • folder filtering (though I think .svn and .hg folders will be fine, since their contents will very rarely match the extension filter)
  • flavored project selection
