Create a global .gitignore in git Posted on

Are you tired of adding .DS_Store, .idea and other files to the .gitignore of all of your projects?

Git lets you specify a universal .gitignore file to ignore them once and for all. It’s a rather simple command:

git config --global core.excludesfile /path/to/global/.gitignore

Pretty simple, isn’t it?
