Is there a way to have Sourcetree push a copy of my global gitignore with each project?

On our team there are a couple of us that use Sourcetree and with it a global gitignore. Unfortunately there are also some developers that use other git tools and don't have a global gitignore. I need for those of us using the global ignore method, rather than making one for every project, have a copy of our global sent up to GitLab on push from Sourcetree.

Hi @David Wheeler ! How are you doing?

We did not find an easy way to acomplish that.

What worked out for us was installing a server side App in our Bitbucket Server to block pushes with same extensions in files. Use used to use File Hooks Plugin and now we are moving to Control Freak for Bitbucket Server (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1217635/control-freak-for-bitbucket-server?hosting=server&tab=overview).

I suppose you could find something similar for GitLab.

Hope this helps!
