Sometimes we ignore the duplicate files for every project.DS_Store or npm-debug.log*, we can save time using a global .gitignore.

Note: Be Keep in mind that it will change your default behavior on your computer. If you share a project, be careful which directories you set into it. For example, if you add >node_modules/, then you can't add or .vscode.

These steps work in Linux and Mac.

1- Create gitignore in the root path.

touch ~/.gitignore

Edit the .gitignore and include these files you always need to ignore.

.nyc_output
.DS_Store
npm-debug.log*

From terminal configure git where the gitignore file to be stored.

git config --global core.excludesfile '~/.gitignore'

Done!!!
