Git can do a lot of things, but I’m lazy remembering all the commands I need – some of them are like 5 words long. So I’ll put this here so next time I don’t have to search for them.

Update list of remote branches:

git remote update origin --prune

Or set automatic pruning globally:

git config --global fetch.prune true    

Delete local and remote branch:

git push origin --delete <branch_name>
git branch -d <branch_name>

Push all branches to remote:

git push --all -u

Push this new branch to remote:

git push origin branchB:branchB

Add annotated tag:

git tag -a v1.4 -m "my version 1.4"

And push tags to remote

git push --follow-tags

To kill all the local changes do

git reset --hard HEAD

To make sure all the extra files are removed do

git clean -f -d
