Creating .gitignore files the easy way automatically!
Its high time that I found an easier way to make
.gitignore files for my
git repos. My Github feed came to the rescue today and introduced me to gitignore.io.
It works like magic! I use a
fish shell and to get
gi working is to do the following steps:
Create a file for the function using
vim ~/.config/fish/functions/gi.fish and enter the below code
# Credit: https://geowarin.github.io/the-missing-fish-shell-tutorial.html # Credit: https://github.com/joeblau/gitignore.io function gi curl -L -s https://www.gitignore.io/api/$argv; end
gi list to see the supported languages.
gi node to get a
.gitignore for NodeJS.
And yeah ...
gi node,R,django >> .gitignore to create a
.gitignore file that includes the standard config for
django at one shot! :-)
