How to rename a branch in GitHub

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.

Renaming 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 work branch 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_name with your branch name.
