Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/git-wipe.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/l/git-wipe.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/pyversions/git-wipe.svg https://coveralls.io/repos/github/povils/git-wipe/badge.svg?branch=master https://travis-ci.org/povils/git-wipe.svg?branch=master

The problem

From time to time if you have many forks and do many pull requests it is inevitable that you will have stale branches. And as time marches on the number of these branches across forks can become big.

The answer

git-wipe is simple command line tool to cleanup your Github fork branches.

Install

$ pip install git-wipe

Usage

In order to use git-wipe first you need to create your Personal Access Token.

You can set this token to your environment variable:

$ export GIT_WIPE_TOKEN=your_access_token

And then you can easily:

$ git-wipe cleanup
Searching for branches. This may take a while...
Founded branches:

povils/repo_1/Branch_1
povils/repo_1/Branch_2
povils/repo_2/Branch_1
povils/repo_3/Branch_1

Total: 4
Delete these branches? [y/N]: y

Other options

--token              instead of environment
--preview            just to preview merged branches
--timeout            set connection timeout. Default 30 seconds
--skip-repository    skip repository you don't want to search. Multiple
--skip-branch        skip branch you don't want to delete. Multiple
--no-interaction     do not ask any interactive question

Example:

$ git-wipe cleanup --skip-repository=repo_1 --skip-branch=develop --no-interaction

This command will clean all merged branches without interaction, except from fork with name ‘repo_1’ and except all branches with name ‘develop’

Note:

Only forks where you are owner will be involved in search. Also master branches will never be deleted!
