My personal .gitignore file

github

Lesson learned

After doing this file many times, I decided to build my personal .gitignore file; I use to add it in my very fist commit as a good practice in every single git repository I create.

Currently we are ignoring:

  • Operating systems’ temporary files: Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, Windows.
  • IDEs and editors’ configuration: Vim, Sublime Text, Notepad++, Eclipse, Netbeans, Xcode, IntelliJIDEA.
  • Other Control Version Systems: CVS, SVN

More information about ignoring files: https://help.github.com/articles/ignoring-files

Note: if you want to create your own configuration in your .gitignore you could use: http://www.gitignore.io/

How to integrate this file into my project

  • Download or copy following file/content in the root directory of your project with the name .gitignore (gitignore.txt)
  • If you download gitignore.txt file, please rename it to .gitignore

    Common issue: “OS X doesn’t let me to rename my gitignore.txt to .gitignore”:

    “You can’t use a name that begins with a dot “.”, because these names are reserved for the system. Please choose another name”.

    A workaround for this is to:

    1. Open the terminal
    2. cd to the directory with gitignore.txt and run the following command
    3. mv gitignore.txt .gitignore
  • Add .gitignore file to your repository (git add)
  • Commit (git commit)
  • Upload your commit to remote server (git push)

REMEMBER!

Once Git starts to watch/track any file, for example hello.txt in the repository, it is NOT possible to say “Hey git! now, ignore my file hello.txt“. Unless you read this post: How to force Git to “ignore” tracked files.
