Web Development eventually involves dealing with a wordpress site (or multiple), and if you’re like me - you have a bunch of private git repos that all lack wp-config.php files. see wpengine&rsquo;s recommended <code>.gitignore</code> file And if you’re also like me, you probably have a custom git command for hard resets and cleans (I call mine <code>git bleach</code> ) - which means you do a lot of rebuilding, and probably waste a lot of time creating your configs over and over again.
