In Java, an annotation is a form of syntactic metadata that can be added to Java source code. It provides data about a program that is not part of the program itself. Annotations have no direct effect on the operation of the code they annotate. Classes, methods, variables, parameters and packages are allowed to be annotated.
This topic illustrates how to avoid adding unwanted files (or file changes) in a Git repo. There are several ways (global or local
git update-index --assume-unchanged, and
git update-index --skip-tree), but keep in mind Git is managing content, which means: ignoring actually ignores a folder content (i.e. files). An empty folder would be ignored by default, since it cannot be added anyway.
Local notifications allow your app to notify the user about content which does not require the use of a server.
Unlike remote notifications which are triggered from a server, local notifications are scheduled and triggered within an app. Notifications in general are targeted to increase user interaction with the app, inviting or tempting the user to open and interact with it.
UILocalNotification was deprecated in iOS 10. Use the UserNotifications framework instead.
