This tiny CLI script that generates a
.gitignore file for your projects.
You'll want to make sure you have NodeJS installed on your computer. Then, setup is as simple as:
If you've got an older version of node that doesn't yet have
npx, here's a more traditional setup:
npm i -g add-gitignore
add-gitignore macOS Emacs node # or whatever you need
Alternatively, running just
add-gitignore gives you a nice multi-select interface from which you can choose what to ignore, and using the
--help flag helps you out.

I hope this makes your life easier.
