    I was wondering where I could find more advanced GIT commands that are avaiable in the GIT CLI, like assigning flags. More specifically, I'm trying to ignore changes made to my .abproject file using the --assume-unchanged flag (https://help.github.com/articles/ignoring-files#ignoring-versioned-files). 

    Is there a way to use the GIT bash inside my project folder under windows? I've tried and I couldn't find any .git folders in my project directory, so GIT bash wouldn't work. If this is indeed not possible, is there any other way to assign flags?

    Hi Stefan,

    I don't recommend ignoring .abproject file as it is a vital part of the project structure since the last release. Using it we unified all projects created via our clients so they can opened in any of them.

    As for the way to ignore files, there is no option yet to do that in a project created by AppBuilder using our version control feature because you don't have an access to .gitignore file in the cloud. However you can push your project to a third party repository like GitHub. Then you will have access to .gitignore file and edit it.

    Hi Zdravko,

    I'm aware of the importance of the .abproject file and I'm not trying to ignore i., I'm trying to assume the file unchanged after the repository was cloned, which is a feature of the GIT command line interface. I did find out about the .gitignore file in GitHub, but that's not what I need in this particular case :).

    I guess there is no way to open my project via the command line interface of git?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Stefan,

    I am afraid you can't open your project using command line interface of git at the moment.
    If this is something you want to see in the future please add it at our feedback portal.
    Thanks.
