It's been a long time I haven't used git for version control and I have a small question.
Back in time I remember it was possible to manage the git diff strategy when adding binary files in version control.
What I want is to add several png files to my project and modify the way git works with them. When I do a git status or a git diff, I want git to prompt those files only if they were touched and do not try to diff with respect to older versions. So that I can add them and push them without killing the system.
Do you know if it's still possible ?
Use .gitattributes to specify how
git should treat the files.
Here is a sample from my .gitattributes file
* text=auto *.html text *.css text *.bat text eol=crlf *.sh text eol=lf *.jpg binary
