For certain configuration directories in my home dir, I sometimes want multiple files pushed to my dotfiles repo, but the majority of them not to be cared for (.env, .log, etc..) so I needed a way to use gitignore the opposite way: block everything and only allow some things:

# Ignore everything
*

# But not these files...
!.gitignore
!script.pl
!template.latex
# etc...

# ...even if they are in subdirectories
!*/

Thanks stackoverflow
