Git – delete a local branch:
git branch -d some_example_local_branch
Git – delete/remove a remote branch:
git push origin : some_example_remote_branch
In case of error after trying to remove remote branch, run:
git fetch -p
This is what the error message would look like:
error: unable to push to unqualified destination: some_example_remote_branch
The destination refspec neither matches an existing ref on the remote nor
begins with refs/, and we are unable to guess a prefix based on the source ref.
error: failed to push some refs to '[email protected]y_name'
and this is caused due to the fact that perhaps anyone else has already deleted the branch and you need to synchronize your branch list.
