In the last tutorial, we have learned how to rename a local branch in git. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to rename a branch in GitHub.
To rename a branch in GitHub first, we need to delete the remote branch by using the below command.
git push origin --delete work # work is my remote branch name
This above command will delete the
workbranch in GitHub.
Now we need to re-push the branch with the new name or a modified name.
git push origin new_name
Note: Replace the
new_namewith your branch name.
