What files/folders can I safely ignore for inclusion with git?
I copied a good project, removed its gen and bin folders and tried to run the app. The Android Launch window says, "Your project contains error(s), please fix them before running your application. There is a red X on the icon to the left of the project in the Package Explorer. While the gen folder does not exist in Windows Explorer, it does in Package Explorer.
There are file types to ignore
# built application files *.apk *.ap_ # files for the dex VM *.dex # Java class files *.class # generated files bin/ gen/ # Local configuration file (sdk path, etc) local.properties # Eclipse project files .classpath .project # Proguard folder generated by Eclipse proguard/ # Intellij project files *.iml *.ipr *.iws .idea/
