I have a tracked database (already added) file in git. I want this file to always contain the same data in my git repository. Even when I modify it in the working copy (local sandbox) for test purposes.
With git, how to exclude this changed file on my working copy from a commit ?
The way to ignore certain files that are already committed is
git update-index --assume-unchanged file
However, this is a local setting, and it doesn't propagate when cloning.
Its effect is canceled with
git update-index --no-assume-unchanged gui.
