Hi, so I tend to accumulate lots of branches as I'd do one branch per feature. When cleaning up, I'd like to delete all branches, which have been merged. I could use $ git branch -d (which was merged already?) ^C $ git branch --merged # let's find out ... $ # Now run git branch -d with each of the branches.
This kind of question has already been discussed, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6127328/how-can-i-delete-all-git-branches-which-are-already-merged suggests: git branch --merged | grep -v "\*" | xargs -n 1 git branch -d Now it seems as if this operation would be needed by quite a few people actually. Maybe it's time to integrate into git? I'd be interested, which way would be the most git-like way to do it. I could think of: $ git branch -d --merged # no need to specifiy a branch iff --merged is given with -d $ git branch --delete-merged # comes as an new extra option, doesn't clutter other commands $ git branch -d keyword-for-all-merged-branches Before starting such a feature, I'd like to hear input of others.
