Delete a git branch local and remote

This is a continuation of my earlier post about pruning deleted branches

To delete a local branch 

git branch -d <branch_name>

or you can ‘force’ a delete if you have uncommitted changes
The -D is the same as --delete --force

git branch -D <branch_name>

To delete the branch remotely, simply do …

git push --delete <remote_name> <branch_name>

You can also do it like that if you prefer.

git push <remote_name> --delete <branch_name>

Again, you can use -d.

If you want to delete a remote and local branch, it is easier to first delete the remote branch and then the local branch.

You can then go ahead and prune all the branches.

git fetch --all --prune
