Certain IDEs like PyCharm create per-project cache directories with metadata relevant to the IDE configuration for that project.
For example, PyCharm creates
.idea/ directory for each project.
You could edit the
.gitignore file for each repository.
However, I prefer to ignore files in Git system-wide for all repos as follows:
Tell Git where the global ~/.gitignore file is:
git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore
Create / edit the ~/.gitignore file to include things like:
.vs/ .mypy_cache/ .idea/ .DS_Store pip-wheel-metadata/ *.pyc
