I am taking a note regarding this way of ignoring file changes just encase you guys bump in to the situation where the file is not included to your .gitignore file and you want to keep it track later on.
This will tell git you want to start ignoring the changes to the file
git update-index –assume-unchanged path/to/file
(This command will assume that there is no changes to the specified file , so no need to worry if you’ll accidentally committed its changes)
When you want to start keeping track again
git update-index –no-assume-unchanged path/to/file
