How do I delete a default branch in bitbucket?
Correspondingly, how do I delete a default branch in GitHub?
You need to go to the GitHub page for your forked repository, and click on the “Settings” button. Click on the "Branches" tab on the left hand side. There's a “Default branch” dropdown list near the top of the screen. From there, select placeholder (where placeholder is the dummy name for your new default branch).
Moreover, how do I change the default branch in bitbucket?
We can set the default branch by navigating to "Settings" > Repository Details > Default branch drop down. However, i have a follow up question to this: Can this be achieved with a command line utility (may be: Bitbucket Command Line Interface). You must be a registered user to add a comment.
Deleting a branch LOCALLY Delete a branch with git branch -d <branch> . The -d option will delete the branch only if it has already been pushed and merged with the remote branch. Use -D instead if you want to force the branch to be deleted, even if it hasn't been pushed or merged yet. The branch is now deleted locally.
