After seeing -e option in git config (open config files in editor)

I decide it's time to propose to incorporate an alias really useful to me

git ignore

The repo is on


git ignore <whatever> adds <whatever> to .git/info/exclude

and git ignore -e starts an editor to tweak your excludes

by default it operates con exclude file, but it can also work with
.gitignore using -i option

I find it invaluable for IDE project files, TODOs, test files...

Hope someone ease its workflows using it.
