Java-algo\build is ignored when zipping a file

I’ve been trying to upload an algo, but the website shows the standard “algo failed to compile” error. When looking back on the attempted zip in powershell, it shows that the files in java-algo\build are being ignored while all other files are included. I was wondering if that could be the issue?

I’m not sure why you’re having trouble, but the file exclusion is intentional. Our zipalgo binary ignores any file identified in the .zipignore file, such as compiled code, to make your zipfile smaller, so it uploads and flows through the terminal system faster.

Of course, make sure that you’re not saving source code in the build directory :slight_smile:
