Reset file mode (chmod) changes when making a Git commit

Stanislav KhromovStanislav Khromov

Sometimes you copy files into your GitHub repository on top of existing files (for example, syncing some code from an external source).

This can cause the file mod / chmod to differ, for example some files are 0644 in the repo and 0755 from the folder you copy. Git picks up on this which can cause a lot of confusing diffs to sift through.

With this one-liner you can remove all the chmod file changes before making a commit:

git diff -p -R --no-ext-diff --no-color \
    | grep -E "^(diff|(old|new) mode)" --color=never  \
    | git apply
