Hide untracked files in Git status output

February 9, 2016   

Use git status -uno or git config status.showUntrackedFiles no.

I’m trying out a technique of only tracking the active theme files in Git and not touching anything else. This left me with tons of untracked files (other themes, uploads, plugins, core files, etc). Instead of fiddling with .gitignore (what I usually do), I’m keeping all of that untracked and just hiding it.
