I have an Android library and for some reason, the files and folders I have specified in my .gitignore are not being ignored. I have tried modifying my .gitignore and also following these steps, but this doesn’t change anything. Here is my top-level .gitignore (which can also be found on the GitHub repo): # Gradle […]
I have copied a previous project that has git allready in it. I have removed .git and .gitignore folders. Then reïnitialized git and generated a .gitignore file. Which is completely empty.

I have the following in my .gitignore: * !.gitignore !.gitconfig !.vimrc !.bash/ !README.md I would like git to track everything in that .bash/ directory, but it seems to be ignoring it, but tracking everything else.

E.g.: file widgets/include_1/Widget.js should be included. Is there any possibility to set the rules as […]

To ignore any file starting with ~(tilde), I put following in gitignore file ^~.* But, it is not working for the file name starting with ~(eg. ~$ofession email.docx).
