Hi - I am BRAND NEW to both GIT and SourceTree I have decided to try and use sourcetree since its designed for beginners and I am not in a huge hurry to learn the console. My question is this: my project will require a .gitignore file because there are several folders that I need to not sync to avoid issue.
How do I create this with sourcetree? There doesnt seem to be a button to create a file and I cant figure out how to create a .ignorefile just using windows in general. All the tutorials I read say to use the console to create the file, but I dont see any git commands for source tree to create new files, only to push them, stage them, etc.
How can I create a .gitignore file, and edit its contents? I am open to a way to just do this in Windows or to use SourceTree if there is a way. Thanks~!
In sourcetree you should be able to right click on one of the files/folders and select ignore. This will auto create a .gitignore file for you with that particular file/folder in it.
From there, just edit the .gitignore file as you would any other file. In a text editor etc.
I'm running SourceTree on my mac but I'm not able to ignore some files like the: .DS_Store which don't have any meaning for my source. on my client Version 18.104.22.168 (Mac) the ignore option is grayed out. granted I already have a .gitignore file in my local repository... could that be the issue?
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
