Filefile

Filefile is a file used to keep track of all the files you have in your repository’s root directory that end in file.

Wait, what?

The root directories of countless projects across the interwebs are littered with equally countless Filefiles. I find this somewhat entertaining, because it’s inherently obvious that they’re all files.

What should go in your Filefile

Here is what your average project’s Filefile might look like:

Berksfile
Blakefile
Brewfile
Cakefile
Capfile
Caskfile
Cheffile
Dockerfile
Doxyfile
Filefile
Gemfile
Gruntfile
Guardfile
Huxleyfile
Jakefile
Knylefile
Makefile
Modulefile
Podfile
Portfile
Procfile
Puppetfile
Rakefile
Sitefile
Tenderfile
Vagrantfile

Yes, your Filefile should include itself. Deal with it.

Creating your very own Filefile

$ cd /path/to/your/project
$ touch Filefile && ls *file >> Filefile
