How to delete a branch from a remote repository in Git?
Published January 3, 2021
In the last post we discussed how to delete a branch locally in Git?.
To delete a branch from a remote repository in Git first, you need to delete the branch name from local using the command
git branch -D <YOUR_BRANCH_NAME>
After that you need to push those changes to the remote repository and also by passing the
--delete flag to delete the branch from the remote repository.
It can be done like this,
git push origin --delete <YOUR_BRANCH_NAME>
That's it. 😃
