Best practices for adding .gitignore file for Python projects? [closed]


Github has a great boilerplate .gitignore

# Byte-compiled / optimized / DLL files__pycache__/*.py[cod]# C extensions*.so# Distribution / packagingbin/build/develop-eggs/dist/eggs/lib/lib64/parts/sdist/var/*.egg-info/.installed.cfg*.egg# Installer logspip-log.txtpip-delete-this-directory.txt# Unit test / coverage reports.tox/.coverage.cachenosetests.xmlcoverage.xml# Translations*.mo# Mr Developer.mr.developer.cfg.project.pydevproject# Rope.ropeproject# Django stuff:*.log*.pot# Sphinx documentationdocs/_build/


When using buildout I have following in .gitignore (along with *.pyo and *.pyc):

.installed.cfgbindevelop-eggsdistdownloadseggspartssrc/*.egg-infoliblib64

Thanks to Jacob Kaplan-Moss

Also I tend to put .svn in since we use several SCM-s where I work.


Covers most of the general stuff -
