alpeb / sbt-gitignore

An sbt plugin for adding generic .gitignore files to projects.



An sbt (Simple Build Tool) plugin for adding generic .gitignore files to your projects.

Add Plugin

You can enable the plugin in any given project by adding this into the project/plugins.sbt file:

addSbtPlugin("com.alpeb" % "sbt-gitignore" % "1.0.1")

To have it available in all your projects, add that line into the ~/.sbt/0.13/plugins/plugins.sbt file.


To add a generic .gitignore file to your project, just type gen-gitignore in the sbt console.

To add more entries to the ones provided by default, append the file names/patterns to the gitIgnoreFiles setting in your build.sbt file, for example:

gitIgnoreFiles := gitIgnoreFiles.value + "/somefile.ext"
