GIT default .gitignore file

It’s always handy to have this around: the default configuration for git to know which files to ignore when working on a software project. The file is taken from the GitHub for Windows upon creating a repository.

You can view and download the file here:

https://invision-web.net/web/sources/gitignore.txt

Or put it into your working git repository:

# cd /path/to/work/
wget -qO- https://invision-web.net/web/sources/gitignore.txt > .gitignore
