OK, so you need to write and install a pre-push hook in your local
Start with reading the githooks manual page (run `git help hooks`).
The hook is a program (or, in the simplest case, a script) which gets
run when some specific event happens in the repository. The Git
instance which is running the hook communicates with the process
running it via the command-line parameters and standard input stream.
The hook communicates with Git via its exit code; whatever it prints
to its standard output and error streams is sent to the client.
The section describing each kind of hook in the manual page describes
what exactly is submitted to the hooks of that kind, and what is
expected in exchange.
Exiting with a non-zero exit code from the pre-push hook fails the
operation, and no push will be attempted. This is what you're after.
Now you need to write the hook's code.
The hook gets passed one or more lines describing what is about to be
pushed, and what data to update with the push. See the manual for more
IMO the simplest thing you can do is to is to run `git diff` for each
input line and catch with it any change which deleted any files.
Something along this lines could be a good start:
set -e -u
while read _ our _ their; do
out=`git diff --name-status --diff-filter=D $their $our`
test -z "$out" && exit 1
