The command line tool "gibo" is a tool for creating .gitignore files. "gitignore" files are used by Git to exclude certain files and directories from being tracked or considered for commits.

Gibo provides an easy way to generate .gitignore files for different programming languages, tools, and platforms. It has a predefined list of templates for popular programming languages like C++, Python, Java, Ruby, etc., as well as templates for various tools and frameworks like Visual Studio, Xcode, Node.js, Android, and more.

With gibo, you can quickly generate a .gitignore file by specifying the desired templates. For example, running the command "gibo dump Python VisualStudio >> .gitignore" will create a .gitignore file with default rules for Python and Visual Studio, appending it to any existing .gitignore file.
