How to ignore files already added in your git repository without using .gitignore file

We will see how to ignore files that are already added previously to your git repository without using the .gitignore file. Use the following commands to achieve the same.

git rm --cached file_name_here
git commit -m "Your commit message here"

Now update your .git/info/exclude file to not show the changes in your file_name_here file.

Open .git/info/exclude and add file_name_here entry there to start ignoring the file.

Have a good day! 🙂
