Git Gone

A few days ago Eugene Yokota published a git-gone script which deletes local branches left over from pull requests. I liked the idea; at work we use pull requests a lot and I already have many stale branches around.

We use Windows at work, tho. I know, folks frown about Windows as developer system, and I sure do miss my Mac at times, but it is what it is, and the job’s worth using Windows. And with a few tweaks, Powershell 6, ConEmu and VS Code it’s a decent system to my surprise. Anyhow, the one thing Windows can’t really do is run Bash scripts, and unfortunately Eugene’s tool is a bash script.

So I wrote git-gone in Rust with the git2 crate and published it to Enjoy.
