Git: Delete a branch (local or remote)

To delete a local branch

git branch -d the_local_branch

To remove a remote branch (if you know what you are doing!)

git push origin :the_remote_branch

Note

If you get the error error: unable to push to unqualified destination: the_remote_branch The destination refspec neither matches an existing ref on the remote nor begins with refs/, and we are unable to guess a prefix based on the source ref. error: failed to push some refs to 'git@repository_name'

perhaps someone else has already deleted the branch. Try to synchronize your branch list with

git fetch -p

The git manual says -p, --prune After fetching, remove any remote-tracking branches which no longer exist on the remote.

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for old versions of Ruby on Rails (3.2 and 2.3).
