Gitignore Generator Project

June 11, 2015

I was hanging out in Chicago while my wife was in class learning web design, and I thought I would make a website to generate a .gitignore file as quickly as possible. So I used the github API, to grab data from a repo with a list of gitignore examples and I made this site.

I don’t know how useful it is, but it was fun to make something by myself from start to finish in just a few hours. It was also fun to use jQuery again, which I haven’t used in a long time.
