    no-more-masters

    Rename your default Git branch from master to main.

    This script requires that you have a GitHub authorization token. As well, if you have branch protections enabled for master, consider turning them off so that the script can remove the branch from your remote repo.

    Install

    $ npm install -g no-more-masters
    

    Usage

    $ no-more-masters
    
    OPTIONS
      -b, --branch=branch  [default: main] The branch name to create
      -h, --help           show CLI help
      -v, --version        show CLI version
    

    What is this doing?

    1. git checkout -b main master: Create a branch main from master

    2. git push origin main: Push that main branch to your remote

    3. Using the GitHub API's Update a repository endpoint, set main as the new default branch

    4. git branch -D master: Removes master from your local machine

    5. git push origin :master: Removes master from your remote repository

      Note: this step will fail if branch protections are enabled

    Configuration

    If you have core.defaultBranch set, the script will use that branch name as its default.

    A GitHub API token can also be provided via the GITHUB_TOKEN environment variable.

    Install
