The command to delete a local git branch has the following syntax:
git branch --delete <branch_name> # or the shorter version git branch -d <branch_name>
You can also force-delete a branch using the
-D flag like so:
git branch -D <branch_name>
For example, to remove the local branch called "
foo" you could use any of the following commands:
git branch --delete foo # or the shorter version git branch -d foo # force-delete git branch -D foo
Please note that these commands do not delete the remote branch. Deleting a remote branch is done in an entirely different way.
