I have a few files that have paths in them that i have changed to run locally.
I don't want these local path changes to get pushed to the repo but i also do not want to ignore the file as I may change other parts and want to push those changes.
My two concerns are 1. the changes are always there in the "Unstaged files" section, which becomes annoying to constantly go through all the files to try find the real changes that i want to commit. 2. im worried i accidentally stage the whole file without removing the path change and push that change to the repo unknowingly (which brings me back to point 1 where i have to carefully check the files to avoid this)
What is the easiest and fastest way to deal with this?
I've tried using a branch but its a headache trying to push changes to the master branch.
Using a patch is slow and its annoying to constantly update the patch.
Stashing is the easiest but it means i lose the local changes while its stashed.
Ive tried to look into assume-unchanged and skip-worktree but it seems they both have issues when pulling or hard reset (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13630849/git-difference-between-assume-unchanged-and-skip-worktree/23806990#23806990).
