<h2 id="_description">DESCRIPTION</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>A <code>gitignore</code> file specifies intentionally untracked files that
Git should ignore.
Files already tracked by Git are not affected; see the NOTES
below for details.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Each line in a <code>gitignore</code> file specifies a pattern.
When deciding whether to ignore a path, Git normally checks
<code>gitignore</code> patterns from multiple sources, with the following
order of precedence, from highest to lowest (within one level of
precedence, the last matching pattern decides the outcome):</p></div>
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
Patterns read from the command line for those commands that support
them.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Patterns read from a <code>.gitignore</code> file in the same directory
as the path, or in any parent directory, with patterns in the
higher level files (up to the toplevel of the work tree) being overridden
by those in lower level files down to the directory containing the file.
These patterns match relative to the location of the
<code>.gitignore</code> file. A project normally includes such
<code>.gitignore</code> files in its repository, containing patterns for
files generated as part of the project build.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Patterns read from <code>$GIT_DIR/info/exclude</code>.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Patterns read from the file specified by the configuration
variable <code>core.excludesFile</code>.
</p>
</li>
</ul></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Which file to place a pattern in depends on how the pattern is meant to
be used.</p></div>
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
Patterns which should be version-controlled and distributed to
other repositories via clone (i.e., files that all developers will want
to ignore) should go into a <code>.gitignore</code> file.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Patterns which are
specific to a particular repository but which do not need to be shared
with other related repositories (e.g., auxiliary files that live inside
the repository but are specific to one user&#8217;s workflow) should go into
the <code>$GIT_DIR/info/exclude</code> file.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Patterns which a user wants Git to
ignore in all situations (e.g., backup or temporary files generated by
the user&#8217;s editor of choice) generally go into a file specified by
<code>core.excludesFile</code> in the user&#8217;s <code>~/.gitconfig</code>. Its default value is
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/ignore. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is either not set or
empty, $HOME/.config/git/ignore is used instead.
</p>
</li>
</ul></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The underlying Git plumbing tools, such as
<em>git ls-files</em> and <em>git read-tree</em>, read
<code>gitignore</code> patterns specified by command-line options, or from
files specified by command-line options. Higher-level Git
tools, such as <em>git status</em> and <em>git add</em>,
use patterns from the sources specified above.</p></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="sect1">
<h2 id="_pattern_format">PATTERN FORMAT</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
A blank line matches no files, so it can serve as a separator
for readability.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
A line starting with # serves as a comment.
Put a backslash ("<code>\</code>") in front of the first hash for patterns
that begin with a hash.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Trailing spaces are ignored unless they are quoted with backslash
("<code>\</code>").
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
An optional prefix "<code>!</code>" which negates the pattern; any
matching file excluded by a previous pattern will become
included again. It is not possible to re-include a file if a parent
directory of that file is excluded. Git doesn&#8217;t list excluded
directories for performance reasons, so any patterns on contained
files have no effect, no matter where they are defined.
Put a backslash ("<code>\</code>") in front of the first "<code>!</code>" for patterns
that begin with a literal "<code>!</code>", for example, "<code>\!important!.txt</code>".
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If the pattern ends with a slash, it is removed for the
purpose of the following description, but it would only find
a match with a directory. In other words, <code>foo/</code> will match a
directory <code>foo</code> and paths underneath it, but will not match a
regular file or a symbolic link <code>foo</code> (this is consistent
with the way how pathspec works in general in Git).
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If the pattern does not contain a slash <em>/</em>, Git treats it as
a shell glob pattern and checks for a match against the
pathname relative to the location of the <code>.gitignore</code> file
(relative to the toplevel of the work tree if not from a
<code>.gitignore</code> file).
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Otherwise, Git treats the pattern as a shell glob suitable
for consumption by fnmatch(3) with the FNM_PATHNAME flag:
wildcards in the pattern will not match a / in the pathname.
For example, "Documentation/&#42;.html" matches
"Documentation/git.html" but not "Documentation/ppc/ppc.html"
or "tools/perf/Documentation/perf.html".
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
A leading slash matches the beginning of the pathname.
For example, "/&#42;.c" matches "cat-file.c" but not
"mozilla-sha1/sha1.c".
</p>
</li>
</ul></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Two consecutive asterisks ("<code>**</code>") in patterns matched against
full pathname may have special meaning:</p></div>
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
A leading "<code>**</code>" followed by a slash means match in all
directories. For example, "<code>**/foo</code>" matches file or directory
"<code>foo</code>" anywhere, the same as pattern "<code>foo</code>". "<code>**/foo/bar</code>"
matches file or directory "<code>bar</code>" anywhere that is directly
under directory "<code>foo</code>".
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
A trailing "<code>/**</code>" matches everything inside. For example,
"<code>abc/**</code>" matches all files inside directory "<code>abc</code>", relative
to the location of the <code>.gitignore</code> file, with infinite depth.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
A slash followed by two consecutive asterisks then a slash
matches zero or more directories. For example, "<code>a/**/b</code>"
