Did you know most file managers on Linux support a ".hidden" file in your home directory?

It works pretty much as gitignore does: it hides everything that you list in this file, one file/dir per line.



You just have to remember they can easily be found by using ls -a


Yeah, don't mistake this for a security feature. It's just there for convenience when browsing your files in a GUI tool like Dolphin or Nautilus.
