@dekkzz78 It works for completion, more over if there is no candidates matching, files with ignored extensions will appear again.
It's just a side effect that dired respect this variable and such files have a grayish color in it.
Depends on what you mean by recentf, for consult-recent-file those files will be hidden as well (probably because it has 'file category), but recentf-open-files won't even try to hide them.
There's supposed to be something for vim also but I've been having a hard time getting it to work
