We've tried all sorts of explicit and wildcard entries in .gitignore however items in the hidden .vs/ folder as a part of Visual Studio keep getting committed.
Since those are individual settings for developers, they are obviously always different and show up in a git diff.
Are there any hacks out there to ignore everything in the top-level .vs/ folder in the repo?
This answer is similar to ones above but, details actual steps when a valid .gitignore file is inplace, yet items have been checked into the branch and they appear in the origin repository.
- If the
.vs directory has been checked in verify nothing in the current branch has been staged from the directory. If so, un-stage them.
- Go to the level of the directory which has
- Run this command:
git rm --cached -r .vs.
- At this point you should see the files under the .vs directory as slated for deletion.
- Stage and create the commit.
- Push the commit to origin.
