How to have specific .gitignore for each git branch
My objective is to have some production files ignored on specific branches. Git doesn't allow to do it.
My solution is to make a general
.gitignore file and add
.gitignore.branch_name files for the branches I want to add specific file exclusion.
I'll use post-checkout hook to copy those
.gitignore.branch_name in place of
.git/info/exclude each time I go to the branch with
git checkout branch_name.
