Repo with 10,000+ files breaks bitbucket (BB-7693)

Issue #5867 wontfix

created an issue

I know it sounds silly to have 10,000+ files, but I have good reasons. but Bitbucket fails to show the files when I go to browse them.
Is there a way to limit the number of files that are to be displayed? Paging would help greatly.

    I personally would not put 10k files into one folder, but this is a legacy application written in C. It is indeed a pain to work with, Windows Explorer does not like it either.

    Hi Daniel,

    I am sorry to say that we are not going to spend time to fix this edge case.

    As you point out, there are sometimes reasons why you might have so much data in one directory. However a paged source browser would be an awkward interface and this is really affecting a very small portion of our users.

    Thanks for understanding,
