# gitignore


# Introduction

The purpose of gitignore files is to ensure that certain files not tracked by Git remain untracked. Rocket gives you the option to add a prefilled gitignore to your project.

The defined files and folders that are to be ignored are based on the current assumptions about what is necessary in a rocket project.

# Creation

# during ignite process

If you use the ignite command, you can choose if you want to create a gitignore file and will be warned, if an already existing ignore file is going to be overwritten.

# with launchpad

You can also add it via launchpad by running:

rocket launchpad gitignore
