Gitignore doesn't work

What issue or error are you experiencing?

My .gitignore file doesn’t work when I’m pushing to Flywheel.

It’s not tediously annoying having to uncheck certain folders and files everything when pulling from sites because they were first pushed to them.

Please make this feature work.


What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Create a functionality for .gitignore to work with LocalWP when pushing to Flywheel

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
