Removed .svn folders from admin theme settings

As SVN user, you always have .svn folders. These folders also show up in the admin in the theme settings.

I modified _get_view_files in /controllers/admin/setting.php a little to hide them:

     * Get the views file list as an array
     * @return array    Files names list
    function _get_view_files()
        $views = array();
        $theme_path = APPPATH.'../themes/'.Settings::get('theme').'/views';

        if (is_dir($theme_path))
            $dir_iterator = new RecursiveDirectoryIterator($theme_path);
            $iterator = new RecursiveIteratorIterator($dir_iterator, RecursiveIteratorIterator::SELF_FIRST);
            foreach ($iterator as $file)
                if ($file->isFile() && (substr($file->getFilename(), 0, 1) != ".") )
                    // Set a human readable path
                    $path = str_replace($theme_path, '', $file->getPath());
                    $path = str_replace('\\', '/', $path) . '/';
                    $path = substr($path,1);
                    if (strpos($path, '.svn') === false)
                        // Set the path
                        $file->path = $path;
                        // Set the view ame (filename without .php extension)
                        $file->name = str_replace('.php', '', $file->getFilename());
                        $views[] = $file;
        return $views;

Re: Removed .svn folders from admin theme settings

I don't think this hack is needed, the goal of SVN is to develop the CMS, as CMS users you should export the sources using your SVN software which would then not have .svn folders.

Thanks Gesmit for this post !

Of course it could help developpers, but in a production system, most of the users will not need it ! wink
