Git is a version control distributed system, we use git for managing our code in the simplest way. In this article, I have explained how to remove directory from Git using some commands.
How to Remove Directory From Git
Step 1: Navigate to Local Directory
In the command line navigate to local directory where Git already initialised.
$ cd git_directory //Navigate to the directory
Step 2: Select the Directory to Remove from Git
Now, select the sub directory from the directory to remove from Git. To do that run following command.
$ git rm -r sub_directory_1
This will delete the directory from the current directory.
Step 3: Git Commit and Push the Changes
Commit the changes with nice git commit message and finally push the code to the Git remote repository.
$ git commit . -m "Remove duplicated directory" $ git push origin <your-git-branch> (typically 'master', but not always)
