So I added a folder to my .gitignore file.
Once I do a git status it tells me
# On branch latest
nothing to commit (working directory clean)
However, when I try to change branches I get the following:
My-MacBook-Pro:webapp marcamillion$ git checkout develop
error: The following untracked working tree files would be overwritten by checkout:
Please move or remove them before you can switch branches.
This is what my .gitignore file looks like:
How do I get this working so I can switch branches without deleting those files?
If I make a change, will it affect those files? In other words, if I came back to this branch afterward would everything be perfect as up to my latest commit?
I don't want to lose those files, I just don't want them tracked.
