[solved] Git-plus removing old remote repos from list


I pushed my branch to a remote repo, and then I deleted it on the remote side. Now when I go try to delete remote branches, git-plus still shows the old deleted branch. If I try to delete it, it (correctly) tells me it cannot because it doesn’t exist.

Is there a way to remove it on git-plus without recreating the branch and deleting it again from the local side?


Does this phantom branch still exist after you’ve closed and reopened Atom?



I can either delete the repo and reclone it, or I can recreate the branch remotely and then delete it locally. Those are the two ways I know to get rid of it.


You want to use the fetch prune command. That’ll update your local repository and remove your local references to non-existent upstream branches


Thanks. This worked great.
