[Suggestion] Add a argument to love.filesystem.enumerate

Issue #556 wontfix
Anonymous created an issue

Is is possible for you to add a argument to love.filesystem.enumerate telling whether or not to enumerate hidden files? This would help me a great amount and I'm sure others would agree. Thank you for your time, and keep up the great work!

    The problem with this is that there is no platform independent notion of a "hidden file". On Windows i believe hidden files has some attribute attached to them, while most Unix like OSs don't have hidden files but often treat dotfiles as hidden by convention.

    Ignoring that there is no cross-platform concept of 'hidden file', it's also something we don't have access to (and I don't intend on getting access to, at the cost of portability).
