.feastignore

Overview

.feastignore is a file that is placed at the root of the Feature Repository. This file contains paths that should be ignored when running feast apply. An example .feastignore is shown below:

.feastignore
# Ignore virtual environment
venv
# Ignore a specific Python file
scripts/foo.py
# Ignore all Python files directly under scripts directory
scripts/*.py
# Ignore all "foo.py" anywhere under scripts directory
scripts/**/foo.py

.feastignore file is optional. If the file can not be found, every Python in the feature repo directory will be parsed by feast apply.
