I dont know the specifics but thats due to some change if you are using Git


Hmmm… Is it because the files were automatically created by the server instead of manually added?

The green means some change has been made to that folder/file. The corresponding letters and other colors mean stuff that was modified, added, and there is probably other stuff too.

Are you not wanting to commit these? You will need to add a .gitignore to your repository and it shouldn’t commit those changes when you commit to your repository.


It’s never happened before. Git usually shows that by putting a letter, e.g. A or M, for Added and Modified respectively, next to the filename.

Now that I think about it, I think you’re right. I know that the tan coloring existed before, but I dunno about that green
