I have a project with lots of hidden folders / files in it. I want to create a zip-archive of it, but in the archive shouldn't be any hidden folders / files. If files in a hidden folder are not hidden, they should also not be included.
I know that I can create a zip archive of a directory like this:
zip -r zipfile.zip directory
I also know that I can exclude files with the -x option, so I thought this might work:
zip -r zipfile.zip directory -x .*
It didn't work. All hidden directories were still in the zip-file.
