Source Control Help?

I want to source control my Unreal Engine Project with git into local bare repo, but I need to know what I should put in my .gitignore file so that I wont commit the entire project folder, including the binary/build files into it.

Thanks.

this is the default from GitHub, I think it’s a good start.
