This package provides a configured helm to generate
.gitignore files using gitignore.io.
This package is available on MELPA under the name
helm-gitignore. Please note that gitignore.io’s APIs are available through HTTPS, meaning if you experience issues attempting to connect to the network odds are you may need something like GnuTLS.
M-x helm-gitignore will bring up a Helm interface with all available operating systems, IDEs, and programming languages available to generate a
.gitignore from. You can select a single or multiple candidates to generate a
.gitignore based on the selected candidate(s). A buffer is generated with the resulting
.gitignore, at which point you can save/copy.
