You can configure a
.gitignore_global file to ignore files or directories (e.g.
.vscode/) in all your repositories. Write it as a standard
.gitignore file and save it to some place, like
~/.gitignore_global . Then you can use the following configuration to set this as an excludes file.
git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore_global
Note that, the path given to
git config should be a global path.
