ignore changes to (GIT) committed file

Handwritten on 22 Jun 2020

Ignore changes to GIT committed file.

Suppose you have some config.yaml that was committed in GIT with some default data. You can use config-dev.yaml or you can change the original one. But each change will be tracked in git of course. You can make GIT think this file is not changed:

git update-index --assume-unchanged <file>

But if you want to keep tracked of new changes you can resume tracking changes:

git update-index --no-assume-unchanged <file>
