I’ve forked an orphaned project that needs some changes to start working again. It links to an API which I send my login details to when I use the project. In the existing fork (and mine for now) the login details are left blank “For the user to complete” - and separated handily into a single file.
In order to test my changes though I need to add my login details to the local copy of the fork that I made with “Github Desktop” for Windows. I obviously don’t want to accidentally publish my username and password to the whole world so my question is:
Can I somehow mark a file to be “locked” or “ignore changes here” so that it doesn’t get uploaded when I commit new versions?
