remove-merged-branches

Node.js CI

Command line tool removing all branches that have been merged to the current branch.

Supports dry runs and offline use.

It can be used to remove both local and remote branches.

Usage

Install globally:

npm i -g remove-merged-branches

And then you just call:

rmb

...or if you prefer verbosity, enter remove-merged-branches

Syntax

Usage: rmb [options]

Removes merged branches locally and remotely

Options:
  -V, --version          output the version number
  -b, --branch <branch>  Base branch to compare others to (default: "HEAD")
  -o, --offline          Runs without doing anything to remotes (default: false)
  --verbose              Shows more output (default: false)
  --dry-run              Performs a dry run instead of removing branches (default: false)
  -h, --help             output usage information

What does it do?

First it clears out the local branches that have been removed on the remotes:

git fetch --prune

Then, it finds all local branches merged to the HEAD branch and removes them:

git branch --merged $(git rev-parse HEAD)
# Then calls 'git branch -d' on each merged branch

Then, it finds all remote branches merged to the HEAD branch and removes them:

git branch --remote --merged $(git rev-parse HEAD)
# Then call 'git push --no-verify --delete' on each origin and branch

Finally, it clears out the local branches that have been removed due to the previous action:

git fetch --prune

Example output

INFO Removing local branch feature/add-badges-to-markdown, feature/add-more-time-logs, feature/change-ci, feature/refactor-ssh-exec-cmd, refactor/extract-remove-undefineds
INFO No remote merged branches to HEAD found
