Some useful copy-and-paste lines for the .gitattributes file when using Beanstalk Git.
Image and other binary files
Upload and store images as binary files, rather than text – the default. This will stop images being corrupted upon commit/push.
*.png binary *.gif binary *.jpg binary *.jpeg binary
Dealing with line endings
Handle line endings automatically for files detected as text and leave all files detected as binary untouched.
* text eol=lf
The above will handle all files NOT found below it. The lines below should be added as the files are text and should be normalized (Convert crlf => lf)
*.gitattributes text eol=lf
.gitignore text eol=lf
