Android Projects in SVN – What Files to Ignore?

Setting up your svn:ignore property when you first open a new repository is a good way of making sure you keep unnecessary files from being revisioned. There are basically two entries that you need to make to your svn:ignore list:

  • bin
  • gen

The /gen folder contains files generated by the Android framework, such as the R.java file, and the /bin folder contains files generated when compiling and running the application from within Eclipse.

The .classpath and .project files, as well as the .settings folder are generated by Eclipse, and are best kept in your repository as it makes importing your project into Eclipse much easier, not to mention these files rarely change.
