Make GIT Ignore Everything Except A Few Files

Posted by Weston Ganger

I wanted to add all of my dot files to a repository and wanted to only add some of the files in my home folder.

All you have to do is edit your .gitignore file:


# .gitignore

# ignore all files
*

# except these files
!.gitignore # make sure you add this
!.bashrc
!.vimrc
!.ssh/*
