At work, we generate quite a few feature branches, which get tested, and then merge into “develop”. The feature branches don’t get cleaned up frequently. Here’s a series of shell commands I cobbled together to show the most recent person to commit to the branch, and which branches have been merged into develop.
git checkout develop git pull -r (for branch in $(git branch -r --merged | grep -vP "release|develop|master") ; do git log -1 --pretty=format:'%an' $branch | cat ; echo " $branch" ; done) | sort | sed -e 's#origin/##'
The output looks something like this:
Jane Doe feature/something Jane Doe feature/another-thing Jane Doe feature/yet-another-something Zane Ears feature/howdy
And they can be deleted as follows:
git push origin --delete feature/something
