What would you like to do?

If .DS_Store was never added to your git repository, simply add it to your .gitignore file.

If you don't have one, create a file called

.gitignore

In your the root directory of your app and simply write

**/.DS_Store

In it. This will never allow the .DS_Store file to sneak in your git.

if it's already there, write in your terminal:

find . -name .DS_Store -print0 | xargs -0 git rm -f --ignore-unmatch

then commit and push the changes to remove the .DS_Store from your remote repo:

git commit -m "Remove .DS_Store from everywhere"

git push origin master

And now add .DS_Store to your .gitignore file, and then again commit and push with the 2 last pieces of code (git commit..., git push...)

Other Solution

If .DS_Store already committed:

find . -name .DS_Store -print0 | xargs -0 git rm --ignore-unmatch

To ignore them in all repository: (sometimes it named ._.DS_Store)

echo ".DS_Store" >> ~/.gitignore_global
echo "._.DS_Store" >> ~/.gitignore_global
echo "**/.DS_Store" >> ~/.gitignore_global
echo "**/._.DS_Store" >> ~/.gitignore_global
git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore_global
