  • put a .stignore file into the root of your sharing directory


  • // - comment (no effect)
  • - regular file name or file paths
      • zero or more character but not directory separator
  • ** - zero or more character with directory separator
  • ? - single character that is not the directory separator
  • / - matches in current directory only
  • #include - load patterns from a file
  • ! - negates the pattern (files that are not ignored)
