Handy .gitignore file for Visual Studio on GitHub

git doesn’t exactly play nicely with Visual Studio (or maybe it’s the other way around).  It probably doesn’t matter who’s fault it is. Fact is, if you add a Visual Studio solution to a git repo, you are bound to end up with a tonne of files you don’t really want in there. Cache files, build files, and all the other VS bloat.

So I went searching for a “prepacked” .gitignore file so I didn’t have to guess all of the file types myself.  So I Googled and got this page on GitHub.

Many thanks to the 240+ contributors to-date for compiling this great resource.
