I just follow this solution to add __pycache__/ in my .gitignore but it doesn't work. All directory with format __pycache__ still appear in my git status

Answer

As you have already committed the pycache/ folders before, when you add it to gitignore it can't ignore them, they have already been pushed. You, therefore, need to remove them from your repository using git rm -r <path to __pycach__> and commit this change. Then the gitignore should work.
