Excellent! Thanks for this!
I might consider adding '*.synctex.gz'.
Thank you! Good idea, I added it.
Why not use this instead:
$ cat .gitignore
Because it's decently rare that a .tex file exists by itself, there's BibTeX files, figures, usually some sort of misc notes you want (I even have a rake file using rake-latex from Oxford Uni).
All that said, if you really do have a .tex file in isolation, that's a good solution :)
excellent, just what i need! thanks.
Thank you for this great file !
I forked it for Mac users : https://gist.github.com/871983
Cool! Thank you!
If using latexmk to manage the compile process, add *.fdb_latexmk
I added *\#* to my list to not track the emacs backup files.
I added *.pdf since this is an output file and not a source file. The same could apply to *.dvi.
Thanks !, very useful.
if using the pagebackref option of the hyperref package you also get a *.brf file.
I would sort it alphabetically :) Good one!
While for AUCTeX you also get files like:
Thank you Stefan, this is nice and useful. You may also want to include *.lol (List of Listings), produced by the listings package.
Thank You, indeed. My "manuscript" got rather large and manually tracking changes piecemeal got unmanageable, thankfully I opted way back then to compose it in \LaTeX so now that I've been able to regenerate it from ancient source, I'll be able to track it, too.
Just what i was looking for, great! What about adding *.pdf? And for TexMaker users
is useful also.
BTW, biber creates *.bcf and *.run.xml files.
*.snm and *.nav for beamer!
Thanks for cleaning up my fat repo!
I see multiple comments suggesting adding *.pdf, but as of yet it was not included.. Is there an argument to leave it out?
This is perfect, Thanks!
joostrijneveld: adding *.pdf to a standard .gitignore is a bad idea since pictures in latex documents often are included in pdf format.
I would also argue that it's pretty convenient for someone not interested in editing the document to have easy access to the output pdf file, without having to download any non-common packages and building it manually.
Thanks for your sharing. I propose to add *.run.xml which is generated by biber.
I propose to add *.xdy which is created by xindy, an index processor. You can find the addition in my fork.
Thank you from a very new git and latex user!
i am new to git, and i want to share latex project over here, with all the figures, bib files and tex file.
thanks as well!
would it be possible to add a line that excludes the .pdf file if there is a corrisponding .tex file?
Nice, thanks for sharing. I suggest adding *eps-converted-to.pdf to remove the PDF files generated by epstopdf.

There is also https://github.com/github/gitignore/blob/master/TeX.gitignore
Thanks a bunch!
Thx. Some things to add:
