If you want to hide a particular line of code in a git repository, you can use the git update-index command with the assume-unchanged flag. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open your terminal and navigate to your git repository.
  2. Use the following command to mark a file as "assume-unchanged" to hide a particular line of code:
1
git update-index --assume-unchanged <file_path>


  1. After running this command, Git will stop tracking changes to this file and it will not appear in the list of files that have been modified.
  2. If you want to start tracking changes to the file again, you can use the following command:
1
git update-index --no-assume-unchanged <file_path>


Keep in mind that this method is not recommended for sensitive information as it does not provide encryption or security. It simply allows you to hide changes to a specific line of code in your local repository.
