When you run
okteto up, a file synchronization service will be automatically started to keep your local files synchronized with your development environment.
If some files should not be synchronized between your local machine and your development environment, a file called
.stignore can be created containing file patterns to ignore. The
.stignore file must be placed in the root of the folder.
okteto initcommand will create a default
.stignoretailored to the typical use cases of your programming language.
.stignore file contains a list of file or path patterns. The first pattern that matches will decide the fate of a given file. The patterns follow the same syntax that
.dockerignore. More information on this is available here.
