Make git ignore executable permissions

December 11, 2018

To globally disable git from watching changes to executable permissions use:


git config --global core.filemode false

Of course to just revert executable permissions on folders and subfolders:


find . -type d -exec chmod a+rwx {} \; 
find . -type f -exec chmod a+rw {} \;
