git remove from from repo and stop tracking

Update your . gitignore file – for instance, add a folder you don't want to track to . gitignore .
git rm -r --cached . – Remove all tracked files, including wanted and unwanted. Your code will be safe as long as you have saved locally.
git add . – All files will be added back in, except those in . gitignore .

How to ignore files in git

Then in Git Bash you have to write the following line:

git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore_global
If the repository already exists then you have to do the following:

git rm -r --cached .
git add .
git commit -m ".gitignore is now working"
If the step 2 doesn’t work then you should write the whole route of the files that you would like to add.
