Vivado file extension reference

Is there a document that lists all the file types/extensions used in a Vivado project?

@sritchie,

You learn as you play with the tools from design entry to bitstream generation.

However as a start this doc should be helpful - UG893 "Using the Vivado IDE".

No. I have never come across it or the need to know about it.

Are you using Vivado or ISE?

The wpc file is located in a folder called "wt" under the ".cache" folder.

I want to know if this requires to be included with files written to a version control database.

Thanks for your help so far.

@sritchie,

I don't think you should worry about it. Don't include it in your version control system. It will create more problems rather than releving.

It will be generated locally by the person using it.

You don't need to consider all 'Vinado generated files' for version control. See my reply in this post for the files needed to be considered for version control.

@sritchie 

Like dpaul24, I also do not archive files that can be regenerated by the tools.  The following thread describes how I’ve been keeping Vivado archive size small.

Improving my answer, see the screenshot for the files that need consideration. One can find them easily by clicking on the Source File Properties and then expanding the Type drop-down. Don't forget the *.xpr, wcfg, xci and xcix types. I would say just use your common sense regarding the files that need version controlling.
