Make git ignore changes to files
Just another nice feature of
git(1) that I always forget about when I
need it (it just happened)… posting it here, in the hope that it’ll
get stuck in my head.
$ git update-index --assume-unchanged some_file
This will make git to stop tracking the changes to the given file, even if it has already been added to the repository index.
To revert it:
$ git update-index --no-assume-unchanged some_file
And voilà, as if nothing ever happened.
