Make Git ignore 'No newline at end of file' when committing
I’m working on bugs that will be integrated back into the original repo and a lot of the files do not have a newline at the end of the file.
Is there any way to make Git ignore this and allow me to make commits without that showing up?
- How do you configure Git to ignore changes to line endings?
- Git doesn't change line-endings after creating .gitattributes file
- how to avoid git-apply changing line endings
- Github: Reject commits containing DOS newline characters
- GitHub diff for adobe flash .as files
- Forcing all line endings to LF for git
I know with git diff you can do
--ignore-space-at-eof to hide that but how can I make this happen when I do a
The files need to be committed and pushed without adding a newline to the file as well as not have the commit show the need for a newline at the end.
I understand that there isn’t a newline being added to the file but I need a way to suppress the warning message of ‘no newline at end of file’

The files need to be committed and pushed without adding a newline to the file as well as not have the commit add the newline at the end.
The “No newline at end of file” message is only a warning. This message doesn’t prevent one from committing.
Indeed, the code below just does this. A file is created without a newline (the
-n option takes care of this). The file is staged then committed. Then, the same file is altered, still without adding a newline, and a new commit is made.
$ cd /d/temp $ mkdir test && cd test $ git init . Initialized empty Git repository in d:/temp/test/.git/ $ echo -n test > file.txt # Create a file without a trailing newline $ git add . $ git commit -m "Initial commit" [master (root-commit) b99fc8b] Initial commit 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+) create mode 100644 file.txt $ echo -n ing... >> file.txt # Append some text to the same file (still without a newline) $ git add . $ git commit -m "Fixing bug without adding a trailing newline" [master f0be668] Fixing bug without adding a trailing newline 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-)
Taking a peek at the latest commit will show that no newline has been added in the process

So Git won’t automatically add a newline for you. However, if you see this happening, there’s a strong possibility that your IDE or text editor does this for you, before saving your files. In that case, browse the options and make the appropriate changes.
