I have a repository with a file,
Hello.java. When I compile it, an additional
Hello.class file is generated.
I created an entry for
Hello.class in a
.gitignore file. However, the file still appears to be tracked.
How can I make Git ignore
The problem is that
.gitignore ignores just files that weren’t tracked before (by
git add). Run
git reset name_of_file to unstage the file and keep it. In case you want to also remove the given file from the repository (after pushing), use
git rm --cached name_of_file.
