Different strokes, I suppose. There are absolutely some files that are regularly .gitignoreed that are independent of IDE.

node_modules/ forel example, and often there are .env.something files with varying names depending on the project type.

I'm sure you've experienced this in varying degrees throughout your career - there's rarely a clear-cut, single answer to anything we do. I'm not sure it benefits anyone much to world such a broad cudgel as to call a tool like this unhelpful because of your preference.

I'd imagine we could think of a dozen other reasons for and against this over a coffee. Maybe we will get to one day!
