What is a GITATTRIBUTES File Type?

The GITATTRIBUTES file allows you to do a variety of functions such as order how it should be differentiated (show changes between an index and a tree, changes between two trees, etc.) not-text files or have the contents of the filter Git before checking it in or out of Git.

This is a useful attribute that tells Git to process a specific file extension as a binary: * extension -crlf -diff or * extension binary.

An example of a GITATTRIBUTE file is: # Auto detect text files and perform LF * text = auto # personalization for Visual Studio * .cs diff = csharp * .sln fusge = union * .csproj fusge = union * .vbproj fusge = union * .vbproj fusge = union * .dbproj fusge = union # Standard to msysgit * .docx diff = asplain * diffot = difftext in so far as diff.
