Git ignore global

/ Published in: Bash
Save to your folder(s)

Here's how to set-up globally a set of excludes when using GIT, in this case setting up GIT to ignore .DS_Store files on a Mac.

First add a common ignore file to the GIT configuration, in this case stored in the users home directory called .gitignore

Next add the exclude line for .DS_Store to the .gitignore file either with your favourite editor or simply with this command which will create it if it doesn't already exist as well.

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore
  2. echo .DS_Store >> ~/.gitignore
