#975 Geany is spamming my project directories by creating geany_run_script.sh file in every one of them


I develop web applications (in PHP, JavaScript, CSS) using Geany, so I'm in no need for compile, run, make... functions of Geany. Yet Geany is spamming my project directories by creating geany_run_script.sh file in every one of them.

The question is: What can I do to make it stop doing this?

I don't know if this is related to solved bug https://sourceforge.net/p/geany/bugs/288/

version: 1.23.1
system: Arch
steps to reproduce: Create project and some files in it and save them.

    The only time geany_run_script.sh is created is when the execute command is used, build->execute or f5 or the gear on the toolbar.

    What is the third line in the geany_run_script.sh files? Please look at several, they may not be the same.

    You're right, the third line is different. But it is always this:
    php "some-local-project-file.php"
    Which, at my guess, is the file on which was the F5 run on.

    The weird thing is that now I can't reproduce it either (aside from the way you described... which I'm fairly sure I never used).

    I'll be in touch when I reproduce it again.

    So, with some time passed the geany_run_script.sh files are sometimes still created and I don't realize running the execute command either way. So really there has to be something wrong with Geany or some of the plugins I use (saveactions, treebrowser, geanylipsum, addons).
    The good news is that thanks to @frlan at http://stackoverflow.com/a/20146594/836697 I can finally turn that off!
