Git Remove Tracked file


Git is powerful. To tell you how powerful it just compare it with Mjolnir

But there are always some files which are being tracked in the versioning event if it is not used for us.

Let us take an example:


In the above image we can see some of the folder like build, idea are being tracked.

We can simply remove if from being tracked by few commands.

Add .gitignore plugin in you android studio.

Here is sample .gitignore file took from community.

Now if you want to untrack the files, Here are the steps you can follow.

  1. Update the .gitignore file
  2. commit pending changes
  3. Execute following git command.




Hope that fix your git tracking problem.

Happy coding !
