I develop my local repo with Eclipse. The repo therefore contains files and directories created by Eclipse, e.g. .settings, .buildpath, .project and such. I do not want these folders and files to be pushed to Bitbucket. I added them to .gitignore and also to .git/info/exclude. I ran the git command:
git ls-files --others --exclude-from=.git/info/exclude
But whenever I recreate the Bitbucket repo, these are pushed up and I see them in the source list. How can I avoid that?
/.buildpath /.settings /.project /.gitignore
# git ls-files --others --exclude-from=.git/info/exclude # Lines that start with '#' are comments. # For a project mostly in C, the following would be a good set of # exclude patterns (uncomment them if you want to use them): # *.[oa] # *~ /.buildpath /.settings /.project /.gitignore
I found the reason and also fixed it. Problem was that there were previous commits for those objects because they were not always excluded. I reinitialized the repo locally, excluded those files and recreated the repo in Butbucket. That worked.
