Hello!

I've recently started using both git and EGit.
I've sucessfully created repositories for myself, and importing theese on different computers. Although I added the whole project to BitBucket, which I'm using as repo, and I've heard this is not optimal.
So i added a recommended gitignore for eclipse java project (pasted below, essentially only .java files) but now I can't import this project anymore.

I figured this had something to do with .project file so I added this to the repo, and it made me able to import the project BUT i still miss all liraries and such.

Am I supposed to remove some lines from the gitignore, or am I just doing something wrong when importing?

What do mean by "importing a repository" ?

.gitignore rules containing ** are not yet supported by jgit, should be fixed with https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/31366/ which is still under review

> Although I added the whole project to BitBucket, which I'm using as repo, and I've heard this is not optimal.

I don't get what you think is not optimal here

By "Importing a repository" I'm talking about the funtion where you right-click in the package explorer and choose "Import" and the proceed to choose git.
This will if u have added a, say java, project to your repository create a local repository and a project in the workspace.

Well I'm not entirely sure myself since im still new to this Smile It's just that what I've seen most seem to advise against this.
I experienced som path problems with my java libraries when i did this, but im not sure if its related to me adding the entire project to the repository?

I hope this did not confuse you even more Smile

Best Regards,

Fredrik

It's ok to add the whole project. For .gitignore, I don't know who
"recommended" the file you pasted, but I'd tell you to just start with a
trivial .gitignore and add stuff over time to it. The simplest
..gitignore is maybe the one that EGit creates automatically, it only
adds bin/. Use that and you'll probably be fine.

Which error do you get when you try to import / clone the repository ?
Also check the Eclipse error log for errors.

Okay, thank you for the answers Smile
I think I'll go along with EGits own gitignore then.

I got the recommended file from GitHub (not enought posts to add link ;( )

I didnt get any errors, I simply wasnt able to press finish in the import procedure since there was no project in my repository (missing .project file).
Seems to be working well now when I only have bin/ in my gitignore Smile


Thanks again for the help!

Best Regards,

Fredrik
