How to remove .idea folder from Your Repository

If You start new project, some tools create more folders and files. How to take off the garbage after a quick and automatic commit and push from intellij?

  • Add .idea directory to the list of ignored files
echo '.idea' >> .gitignore
  • Remove the directory only from the repository
git rm -r --cached .idea
  • Send the change forward
git add .gitignore
git commit -m 'untracking .idea'
git push origin master
