I’m a big fan of Subversion and I love using TortoiseSVN. Many people prefer AnkSVN over TortoiseSVN because it integrates with Visual Studio, but I feel like I have more control over what’s happening when I’m using TortoiseSVN. Every time I set up a computer for development I have to add a ignore pattern to separate the files I want to check in from the ones I don’t want to check in.
This is my global ignore pattern:
*ReSharper* *.suo *resharper* *Debug* *Release* *.user *.bak
To add this pattern to TortoiseSVN follow these steps:
Right click in Explorer –> Choose TortoiseSVN –> Choose Settings –> Under ‘Global ignore pattern’ add the pattern.
