To delete a local git branch, you can use one of the following
git branch -d <branch_name> git branch -D <branch_name>
- -d flag is used as an alias for --delete, it will delete the branch only if this branch has been merged in the upstream branch
- -D flag is used as an alias for --delete --force, which will delete the branch irrespective of merge status.
To delete a remote branch you can use one of the following:
git push <remote_name> --delete <branch_name> git push <remote_name> :<branch_name>
