How do I set all files in a subdirectory to use a specific eol using gitattributes?
I’ve been trying to set specific files to always use lf and not crlf regardless of autocrlf on the local system.
I tried creating a .gitattributes at the root of the project that only contained
SquishIt.Tests/js/*.js eol=lf and I also tried
SquishIt.Tests/js/ eol=lf. I pushed both of these attempts to my remote and then tried cloning it locally twice. The files under /js/ always showed up with CR+LF in both cases as autocrlf is on globally for me.
I’m on a Windows machine, just in case it was unclear. Is what I’m attempting to achieve even possible?

I wanted to have all text files forced to use LF except one sub directory (.idea) which is forced to use ‘CRLF’. This is how my .gitattributes looks:
* text eol=lf /.idea/* text eol=crlf
So I assume yours should look like:
* text=auto /SquishIt.Tests/js/* text eol=lf
I would set autocrlf to false and set core.whitespace to cr-at-eol. It’s better to let your editors deal with the difference in line endings. Let git store them as they are.
Hope this helps.
