How to delete/prune old local git branches

When you delete a branch with git, and push those changes, you might see that your local repo still has that branch in the list

What this basically does is fetch all the branches and all the ones with a ‘gone’ attribute, (meaning deleted remotely), then we will remove them.

You can view the branches and what their attribute is yourself by typing

Of course, you need to prune the branches on the remote git server

To make sure all is good, just re-list your branches, (local and remote)
