Git – Show Ignored Files

Show ignored files in GIT

git clean -ndX
  • clean – Remove untracked files from the working tree
  • -n, –dry-run – Don’t actually remove anything, just show what would be done.
  • -d – Remove untracked directories in addition to untracked files.
  • -X – Remove only files ignored by git.

After GIT 1.7.6 we can use

git status --ignored
