I am using GitKraken and wonder if there is a way to ignore temporary files.
I haven't found something to do this. I tried it with a .gitignore file but it didn't work.
You can format your .gitignore using patterns described below.
example.mp4 # exclude a single file named example with .mp4 extension *.mp4 # exclude all files with .mp4 extension example/ # exclude folder named example example/*.log # exclude all *.log files in example folder
After you've specified your patterns you need to commit your .gitignore
git add .gitignore git commit -m "Added git ignore file"
If you are already tracking a file and want to untrack it
git rm --cached example.log
The above command will delete file example.log from tracking BUT not from your local file system.
