Include/exclude models

By default, all models declared in your app are analysed by the Forest Liana in order to display them as collections in your admin panel.

You can exclude some of them from the analysis to never send their metadata to Forest Admin. By doing this, these models will therefore never be available in your admin panel.

To do so, add the following code to either define which models are included or excluded.
