gitignore – fatal: no files added
I have an issue with git, more precisely with gitignore.
I have created an empty folder
mkdir fold cd fold git init
Updated gitignore (as below)
git add .gitignore git commit -m "update gitignore"
Now I have several files (among them a .prjx) and folders in my root (fold) and I’d like to add all of them, but when I run
git add *
I get the message below
The following paths are ignored by one of your .gitignore files: ftc.prjx Use -f if you really want to add them. fatal: no files added
I don’t want to add it, I simply want add all the other files and folders.
From my understanding .gitignore should handle exactly that so why I get the message above?
Am I missing something?
Thanks and have a nice day.
One Solution collect form web for “gitignore – fatal: no files added”
you should run
git add . rather than
git add *
* is interpreted by the shell and substituted with all file and folder in the current location. obviously ftc.prjx is one of them and git is just warning that the file is in the ignorelist.
