Today I learned that
git add has built-in support for recursively adding files by file extension.
For example, to add all
.py files, at all levels your current working directory's file tree,
*.py in single quotes:
git add '*.py'
The single quotes here avoids that a classic shell like bash expands the glob
(which only considers matching files in current directory),
and instead passes that glob
*.py directly to
git add, which handles it recursively.
Also applies to other
See pathspec in gitglossary
for more usage details and inspiration.
