Say this is what I'm looking at in git status:
Changes not staged for commit: modified: Makefile.in Untracked files: ../node_modules/somepath/inverter_packet.js
What I want to do is something like move Makefile.in from 'Changes not staged for commit' to 'Untracked files.'
I know I can ignore changes with
git update-index --assume-unchanged Makefile.in, and get them back with the
--no-assume-unchanged command, but I'd rather not have these files completely out-of-view, because I do edit/commit them once in a while.
I want to remove files from the 'not staged' section, but still see it when I type
Alternately, if I could (preferably simply) stop showing the diff for unstaged files (e.g. like my Makefile.in up there) when typing
git diff, that would also be good.
