Is there a way to make Filezilla read the settings i added to .gitignore file and then do the same? (ignore the files specified in the gitignore file)

No. Filezilla does not read the contents of files, nor does it act upon them. But have no fear, there are still a couple of things you can do:

  1. Add FileZilla directory file name filters that will mimic your ignored files
  2. FileZilla is an open source product. You can add a feature that will read the .gitignore file and act upon it. Don't forget to share the code with the rest of us when you're done! :)
