Git Ignore Template for .NET

Hi everyone,

A sample .gitignore file for if you’re working with .net:


Also, if you happen to have added some files you didn’t mean to:

git rm –cached file_you_dont_want.pdb
git commit -m “Remove pdb file”

Thanks to these stackoverflow posts for the info:

Import an Existing Project to BitBucket

Hi everyone,

Today I needed to import an existing project to Bitbucket. The documentation is really good, but just in case you have trouble finding it:

  1. Navigate to the root directory of your project.
  2. Run the following commands in terminal/command prompt:
    git init
    git add –all
    git commit -m “Initial Commit”
  3. Login to Bitbucket and create repository.
  4. Locate the clone URL (left menu) e.g. https://email_address.bitbucket.domain:7999/project_name/repo.git
  5. Upload your files:
    git remote add origin https://email_address.bitbucket.domain:7999/project_name/repo.git
    git push -u origin master

Assets:Precompile (Rake Aborted) – Heroku

Hey everyone,

I ran into the following error over the weekend while trying to push to heroku:

Running: rake assets:precompile
rake aborted!
could not connect to server: Connection refused
Is the server running on host “” and accepting
TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

This stackoverflow post helped to solve the issue. All you need to do is add the following line to your application.rb file:

  1. #Applicication.rb
  2. config.assets.initialize_on_precompile = false

Let me know if you have any problems.
