git-local-ignore is a command-line utility that lets users manipulate .git repository’s
info/exclude file, which works like
.gitignore but is completely local and not included in the repository itself.
In order to function properly, this CLI tool needs to be able to read and write the
.git/info/exclude file inside of the git repository tree on the user’s machine. The
personal-files plugs that currently exist are not applicable to this use case.
In my understanding, this fits under the “tools for local, non-root user driven configuration of the development environment”. Let me know if you have any questions!
The installation instructions will be updated with the link to the Snap store, if the classic confinement is granted.
