I am trying to add all the files to my git index using
git add -A
However, there is one directory with very large files that is causing this error:
fatal: confused by unstable object source data for 9f8c02a8d2a04d7fffed08b299a0cb8996ab7ecb
Therefore, the adding process is broken! How can I tell git I want to exclude this directory while adding everything else? Available online solutions first add everything and then remove some files. Obviously, I cannot do this because git crashes while adding the files in that specific directory.
If your Git version is new enough,
git add -- . ':!<path>'
. means all under the current directory, and
':!<path>' means to exclude the path. So it means to add all except
