Git assessment: is ".gitignore" a .txt file?

HI. I’m trying to do the initial setup for my git assessment. I’m confused about what type of file “.gitignore” is supposed to be, I’m assuming a text file? I’m thinking I should create the file by typing code .gitignore.txt into the terminal? Is this correct? Thanks!

Hi. No just create the file as a .gitignore and that’s it.

Hope this helps!
