There's a project where I don't want Vim to write in a temp buffer and rename, because my files are watched by another program for writes (and not renamings).

I've tried this in my .vimrc:

set backupskip+=*/static/{templates/*.html,js/*.ts}

The goal is to ignore both the templates/ and the js/ directory.

But when I save, I'm getting: E220: Missing }.


Actually, the comma is interpreted by set+= command.

So for this to work, one should escape it:

set backupskip+=*/web/static/{js/*.ts\\,templates/*.html}
