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?

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 git add?

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’

  • How do I force git to checkout the master branch and remove carriage returns after I've normalized files using the “text” attribute?
  • git diff -w produces broken patch
  • Git doesn't change line-endings after creating .gitattributes file
  • Forcing all line endings to LF for git
  • Sharing a git repository between OS/X and Windows
  • Ruby on Rails, Git and CRLF - nontrivial
  • How can I tell if my editor is adding or removing newlines at the end of a file from the diff?
  • Why are there cr characters in the output of a diff when there are none in the input?

    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

    $ git show HEAD
    commit f0be6684dafa85384984e7a725c2fa854183d1d0

    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.
