Git and skip tracked files locally
Posted on August 13, 2019
Today I've learned something new on Git, which is BTW a huge tool there's no end to learning.
There's a file (Adobe Illustrator file) I need to edit in order to use it in my workflow.
I don't want to commit my edits since they are only meant to open it properly.
I can skip an already tracked file in my future commit with this command:
git update-index --skip-worktree FILEPATH
and if I want to check the ignored files, there is this way, found here:
git ls-files -v . | grep ^S
git ls-files list all the git files,
-v makes it verbose,
grep ^S filter out the lines without
S which means 'skip-worktree'.
