Gitignore Gem

Command line program that allows to generate .gitignore files base on predefined templates (in the future you will be able to create your own templates). If you already have a .gitignore file, the content of the templates will be append to it.

DISCLAIMER !!!

The gem is on beta, use at your own risk !!!! (e.g. you could lose your .gitignore if the template is not found :( )

Installation

gem install gitignore

Usage

Usage: gitignore NAMES_OF_TEMPLATES [OPTIONS]

Example: gitignore android osx eclipse

Options

-h, --help                       help

-o, --overwrite                  overwrite the contents of  existing gitignore file

-l, --list                       prints all possible templates

Example

Let say we want to create a gitignore file for a project in a mac, and our project will use ruby, we would execute:

gitignore OSX ruby

ouput:

#********** OSX **********

.DS_Store

# Thumbnails
._*

# Files that might appear on external disk
.Spotlight-V100
.Trashes

#********** ruby **********

*.gem
*.rbc
.bundle
.config
coverage
InstalledFiles

# YARD artifacts

Or let say our project is on linux, and we will use django, and of course python , SASS, and emacs

gitignore Django Linux Python SASS emacs

templates

This gem use the github templates, you can check it at

Github Templates

or you can just execute

gitignore --list

I recommend you to use it in combination with grep as follows

gitignore --list | grep 'Text'
