Fix for filename too long in Git for Windows
If you are running git on windows, with a deeply nested folder structure in your code, you might get the error message - “Filename too long”. That is because in windows, git uses an older version of windows api where there’s a 260 character limit for filename. It’s not a limitation of git but msys, - details on https://github.com/msysgit/git/pull/110.

core.longpaths config to
git config --system core.longpaths true
