After every update to gitignore, follow below steps (this is useless; if you want just to ignore from git; but still keep in git)


First, commit all your changes (required)

# remove first everything

git rm -rf --cached .

# add everything again respecting gitignore file

git add .

git ignore but keep file (USEFUL)


— you can update local git repository by running following command. In this case a file is being tracked in the origin repo. You can modify it in your local repo and git will never mark it as changed

git update-index --assume-unchanged <file>
