Get git not to show untracked files
git commit, is there a way to not display the untracked files in my editor (defined in
$EDITOR)? I know how to do so in the shell (
git status -uno), but I’d like do it in editor as well.
Note that I do not want to ignore these files forever; I just don’t want to see them on certain occasions.
From the git-commit man page:
-u, --untracked-files[=] Show untracked files (Default: all). The mode parameter is optional, and is used to specify the handling of untracked files. The possible options are: · no - Show no untracked files · normal - Shows untracked files and directories · all - Also shows individual files in untracked directories. See git-config(1) for configuration variable used to change the default for when the option is not specified.
