Why is .gitignore not ignoring my files?


See the image below. My .gitignore file should be ignoring all files in src/dist, but isn't.

.gitignore only ignores files that are not part of the repository yet. If you already git added some files, their changes will still be tracked. To remove those files from your repository (but not from your file system) use git rm --cached on them.
