SVN Ignore

It turns out that in SVN it's not enough to put file .svnignore or something like this in the root of you repository folder, unlike Hg or Git. But there is a solution!

  1. Take ignore list for Visual Studio on GitHub: https://gist.github.com/1985627
  2. Go to the root of the project and type in console: svn -R propset svn:ignore -F ignore.txt -R means recursively for all subdirectories.
  3. If you want to remove it use this: svn propdel svn:ignore

TortoiseSVN has global ignore pattern on general tab of its settings. You can just put text from file above to appropriate field.
