Git History

Ignore linter-only commits rules in Git history

If you'd like to ignore noisy linter-only commits in your Git history, we have a .git-blame-ignore-revs file that can filter out problematic commits that were the result of ONLY doing lint fixes. Your local machine can be configured to use that file as a list of commits that should be ignored while doing blames and showing inline file history.

This can be configured by running:

git config --global blame.ignoreRevsFile .git-blame-ignore-revs
