There is a method for ignoring files in an svn via their svn:ingore tool. For those who use windows w/ TortoiseSVN, it has a really slick interface for handling it all. However, for those of us (like me) who are on a Mac and just use the command line, I always forget the commands. So here is my note to myself on how to do it:
First, navigate to the folder I want to edit it’s ignore settings.
Second, execute the command: svn propedit svn:ignore .
(don’t forget the period)
It will then open up a text editor. You put one match pater (or filename) per line. Save and exit, and your svn properties will have been changed. You then need to commit your change, and you’re good.
Now, I won’t forget. If you follow my blog, you might have noticed a trend of myself putting simple things I don’t do frequently here. It seems I have a terrible memory, and it makes is easy for me to find things on my blog again. Hopefully, just maybe, it will help someone else out there too.
