The other day, I pulled down a project and couldn’t get the CSS to build because files were missing. It turned out another developer created a new
resources/css/vendor directory to override styles for third-party components. A fine name, but
vendor was ignored so they were quietly missing from the repository. We updated
.gitignore to use
/vendor instead and all was well.
# Ignores all vendor filesvendor# Only ignores vendor at the project root/vendor
