When I was working, I accidentally put package.lock.json and yarn.lock.json in a commit, I just notice this mistake in the last minutes before I submit merge request.
How I can away with this situation
// remove package.lock.json and yarn.lock.json from git git rm —-cached package-lock.json git rm —-cached yarn-lock.json git add . git commit git push
The ‘—-cached’ is the magic, In simple explanation I keep package.lock and yarn.lock in my computer because I still need those file, but I removed it from the staging area so it won’t appeared.
You can also remove multiple files at once by listing them all in the command like this:
git rm <file_name_1> <file_name_2> <file_name_3> --cached git rm —-cached package-lock.json yarn-lock.json
