While maintaining GIT repositories, in some cases, we might be required to add an empty directory as a placeholder to mean something or we wanted all the files in a directory to stay local. However in GIT we can add only files to the repository and not the directory.
I came across the following stackoverflow post, which suggest a workaround.
It basically suggest to add a
.gitignore file in the directory with the following line.
# Ignore everything in this directory * # Except this file !.gitignore
Hope this helps.
