Some months ago I started to work with GIT. The shift from SVN to GIT wasn’t easy, but now that I’m into GIT I love. Since GIT offers a lot of commands and corresponding options, which I can’t always remember, I decided to include them in my block (to use it as my reference book).
GIT offers the ability to ignore files/folders based on defined regex patterns. These patterns are contained in the .gitignore file of your cloned repositories.
One of the arising questions regarding gitignore is „How can I see what files/directories in my working copy are ignored?“ I found a very handy command in this StackOverflow answer:
git status --ignored
Above command dumps all folders and files in a recursive manner.
