まだ .gitconfig に core.excludesfile を設定しているの?

More than 3 years have passed since last update.

グローバルな .gitignore を設定するとき、よくある記事の説明が、

[core]
    excludesfile = /home/${USER}/.gitignore_global

をして、 ${HOME}/.gitignore_global を置くと。

ダメなんだよ・・・・・・!そういうのが実にダメ・・・・!せっかくgitconfigをスカッとしようって時に・・・・その横着は傷ましすぎる・・・・・・・・!

man gitignore を見ると

Patterns which a user wants Git to ignore in all situations (e.g., backup or temporary
files generated by the user’s editor of choice) generally go into a file specified by
core.excludesFile in the user’s ~/.gitconfig. Its default value is
\$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/ignore. If \$XDG_CONFIG_HOME is either not set or empty,
\$HOME/.config/git/ignore is used instead.

曰く、core.excludesFile のデフォルト値は $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/git/ignore$XDG_CONFIG_HOMEが空の時は $HOME/.config/git/ignore が使われます。特別な理由が無い限り、 $HOME/.config/git/ignore にグローバルな設定を置くのがgitの流儀となります。

なおグローバルなgitignoreは、GitHubのリポジトリを参考にすると幸せになります。
