How to fully delete a git repository created with init? -Delete git repository


I created a git repository with git init. I'd like to delete it entirely and init a new one.



Navigate to the repository that you have initiated git in. Execute the below command.

rm -rf .git

It leaves the working directory as is.


All you have to do is remove the .git file. It holds all the files. It will be hidden in the directory that you have initiated.
