Automagically generate a
.gitignorefile that fits your needs. Thanks to https://gitignore.io
To generate a
.gitignore file for the current directory, you need to run:
$ npx ignr
And BOOM 🔥. That's it.
How it works
It runs a bunch of checks, for example, the existence of certain files in the current directory, installed programs ..etc to determine what things you might need to ignore. Then it simply fetches the necessary data from https://gitignore.io.
Currently we can detect and generate a
.gitignore file for the following templates:
- Visual Studio Code

Well, I've created that package a few years ago, but couldn't really keep it updated since it doesn't fetch the gitignore templates dynamically but rather uses a local copy, which doesn't make sense. I didn't know that gitignore.io has a API back then. So, this package basically replaces
handy-gi-cli. Also, I think the
ignr name is cooler ;)
