There’s a simple way to ignore files/folders to stop showing up in your git status. Please remember these are the “new” files and folders that we will ignore from git and not the files/folders that have already been added and are existing in your git repo.
Add them in the .git/info/exclude file.
Let’s exclude a file random.txt which is in your root folder where you have the .git file, without using .gitignore.
# Open .git/info/exclude and enter random.txt random.txt
Now, let’s exclude a sub_folder.
# Open .git/info/exclude and enter sub_folder_name sub_folder_name
And that’s how we can use .git/info/exclude file for ignoring files/folders in git.
That’s all for today!
