NeoVim won't show . files, like .gitignore or .prettierrc files


I recently started to use neovim in windows with windows-terminal, everything has been nice so far but I have a problem with the files or folders starting with ‘.’, for whatever reason the NERDTree won’t show me the ‘.’ files, I don’t really know if I’m missing a configuration or not. I’ve searched over google but cannot find anything. Any help will be appreciated.


NERDTree has a NERDTreeShowHidden option that tells vim whether to display hidden files. By default, this option is disabled, which means that started with . will be hidden. To change this behavior, you can add let NERDTreeShowHidden=1 to your configuration file.
