.gitignore rule is ignoring your files
Ready to commit, you fire your
git status and you don’t see your files
Use this command to ask Git what rule is causing this ignore:
$ git check-ignore -v filename
For instance to see what rule ignores tests.pyc:
$ git check-ignore -v tests.pyc .gitignore:1:*.pyc tests.pyc
Here we see it’s the first line of the .gitignore file that is in effect.
You can also use
git status --ignored to show the files being ignored.
