My Global .gitignore

For all those who aren’t up with it, there’s a file you can put in your home directory called “.gitignore_global”. Read more about it here: https://help.github.com/articles/ignoring-files

Basically, it allows all your projects to ignore those pesky files you always ignore anyway, automatically. I thought it might be useful to post mine (ignores netbeans, logs, databases, mac files, android developer kit files, xcode files, eclipse files and compiled files):

# Compiled source #
###################
*.com
*.class
*.dll
*.exe
*.o
*.so

# Packages #
############
# it's better to unpack these files and commit the raw source
# git has its own built in compression methods
*.7z
*.dmg
*.gz
*.iso
*.jar
*.rar
*.tar
*.zip

# Logs and databases #
######################
*.log
*.sql
*.sqlite

# OS generated files #
######################
.DS_Store
.DS_Store?
._*
.Spotlight-V100
.Trashes
Icon?
ehthumbs.db
Thumbs.db

# Netbeans #
############
nbproject

# android #
###########

# built application files
*.apk
*.ap_

# files for the dex VM
*.dex

# Java class files
*.class

# generated files
bin/
gen/

# Local configuration file (sdk path, etc)
local.properties

# IOS #

*.swp
*.lock
*~.nib
DerivedData/

*.pbxuser
*.mode1v3
*.mode2v3
*.perspectivev3
!default.pbxuser
!default.mode1v3
!default.mode2v3
!default.perspectivev3
xcuserdata
*.moved-aside

# eclipse #
###########

*.pydevproject
.project
.metadata
bin/**
tmp/**
tmp/**/*
*.tmp
*.bak
*.swp
*~.nib
local.properties
.classpath
.settings/
.loadpath

# External tool builders
.externalToolBuilders/

# Locally stored "Eclipse launch configurations"
*.launch

# CDT-specific
.cproject

# PDT-specific
.buildpath

There you have it, I use netbeans, xcode, android and a mac. Just a helpful tip.
