Ignore file with git locally

Without using .gitignore

Posted on 2017-01-16 11:01:41

Recently I faced a situation, where I had to ignore some file with git. But at the same time I can’t modify .gitignore file in repo.

The solution for such situation is to list such ingnored files in .git/info/exclude in the root of your repo.

This list will not be uploaded to remote repo, and nobody will see it, so it is absolutely local.
