How to delete git branch locally and in remote repo | The Dev Tool |

To delete a local branch you need

git branch -d <branch_name>

where if you write [-d] it only deletes the branch if it has already been fully merged in its upstream branch or if you write [-D] it deletes the branch "irrespective of its merged status."

To delete a remote branch

git push -d <remote_name> <branchname>

and in most cases, <remote_name> will be origin
