I want to delete a branch both locally and remotely.
Failed Attempts to Delete a Remote Branch
$ git branch -d remotes/origin/bugfix error: branch 'remotes/origin/bugfix' not found. $ git branch -d origin/bugfix error: branch 'origin/bugfix' not found. $ git branch -rd origin/bugfix Deleted remote branch origin/bugfix (was 2a14ef7). $ git push Everything up-to-date $ git pull From github.com:gituser/gitproject * [new branch] bugfix -> origin/bugfix Already up-to-date.
To delete the remote branch
git push -d origin <branch-name>
git push origin :<branch-name>
To forcefully delete local branch
git branch -D <branch-name>
