Hi, I'm a Bitbucket noob and having a hard time getting started.
I'm trying to clean up the Bitbucket repository and my local git folder master and branch organisation.
My local computer's git folder has some folders deleted via Terminal $ rm -r folderName > $ git push.
Bitbucket repository still shows the folderName. How do I remove this?
I think part of the mess started with my local machine git cloning to the git folder which was in branch status and not master status?
This post worked for me.
The question should be: "How to delete folders/files with git?"
Not in bitbucket.
You can delete a branch referring to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15150671/delete-branches-in-bitbucket
As for managing branches, I think the following might help
Not sure if you are new to Git, but I learn to understand Git at https://www.atlassian.com/git/:)
Thank you for the reply. The links are easy to read which is a nice improvement for IT documentation.
My issue isn't about deleting a branch however.
The issue is folder/s in the remote Master and a folder in the remote branch that won't delete.
I have deleted files locally and remotely in Master and Branch, but not the folders.
I think I'm misunderstanding how the Master and Branch works.
I have pulled the remote Master and then created a Branch locally. I then pushed the local Master and local Branch to the remote repository.
I'm confused on where the local folder is for my local Master and local Branch?
I have a git working folder/directory, but in there the folders 'magically' appear and disappear when I change to local Master or local Branch via Terminal?
I would like to always have access to seeing my local folders' Master or Branch, regardless of whether I'm in Terminal local Master or local Branch.
so my suggestions are:
- move the file/folder you want to delete in your computer to another folder from your master folder...
then type on your terminal..
- git commit ( this commits the changes like when you move the folder to another
destination, this will commit only the files or folders present in that master folder)
- git push ( this will push the final layout of your folder)
now you can refresh your repo and see updated commit
Result: you see only files and folders you have in your master folder.
This worked the best for me yet I did it in separate lines, for example(example not literal to the scenario listed above but should help):
within this gitignore add what you want to ignore like so -> node_modules
then save make sure you mash cmd + s because mac isn't sensitive to be fair.
$ touch .gitignore
After creating the .gitignore and saving, remove that folder(or file). Like below:
$ cd repository_root
$ rm -rf node_modules
Then it will spit out red sentences don't worry this is just a notification about a change within the repository locally, but the lines
should start with deleted to notify the change in the repository.
Now let's wrap this up by adding. committing and then pushing all of our changes.
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "File cleanup, removal of node_modules and then adding of .gitignore"
$ git push
I have the same problem again about deleting a file off the Bitbucket online remote repository.
I made a local file with the wrong name and pushed it up to the Bitbucket online remote repository.
I have now renamed the wrong named file on my local computer and deleted the wrongly named file.
I then typed $ git add fileWithWrongName.* fileWithCorrectName.* > Enter > $ git commit -m "Deleting wrongly named file and adding new correct named file on Bitbucket online remote repository." > Enter > $ git push > Enter > $ <Bitbucket password> > Enter.
The new file fileWithCorrectName.* was pushed up successfully to the Bitbucket online remote repository, however the fileWithWrongName.* didn't delete/remove from the Bitbucket online remote repository?
Any suggestions please?
