This tiny CLI script that generates a .gitignore file for your projects.

add-gitignore demo


You'll want to make sure you have NodeJS installed on your computer. Then, setup is as simple as:

  • npx add-gitignore

If you've got an older version of node that doesn't yet have npx, here's a more traditional setup:

  • npm i -g add-gitignore
  • add-gitignore macOS Emacs node # or whatever you need

Alternatively, running just add-gitignore gives you a nice multi-select interface from which you can choose what to ignore, and using the --help flag helps you out.

Special Thanks

I hope this makes your life easier.
