I have Initialized a git repository and have made some commit in that now for some reason I do not want to track any files in it and want to remove git from my local repo.
Is there some way I can Uninitialize it?
git stores all the repository related data in a folder named “.git” inside your repository folder. So you just want to keep your files but change it into a “not-git-repository”. Warning: this is irreversible!
cd path/to/repo rm -rf .git
The only files that might remain are hidden “.gitignore” files (but only if you added them yourself or using some tool like eclipse). To remove them:
find . -name ".gitignore" | xargs rm
