I am using git for version control. I want to ignore certain folders such as .local, .settings and cache files etc when storing and tracking on git. I have used github desktop options to ignore them. In other words, I didn’t write the .gitignore file by hand. I had github desktop do it for me. Even after that, the folders and the files are not being ignored and being stored on github.
What am I missing?
Can some one show me a correct sample .gitignore file?
