Over the last few posts, I’ve shown how to create and use the GutHub website for managing repositories. I’ve found that every so often when working with GitHub, I need to delete a repository. This is fairly simple to do, but only delete ones which you are sure are no longer needed, as there is no undo delete function.
To delete a repository, load it on the GitHub website and click the Settings button:
Scroll down to the Danger Zone section and click Delete this repository:
Type the name of the repository into the box to confirm you have the right repository and click I understand the consequences, delete this repository button:
You’ll be taken back to your GitHub dashboard and the repository will have been permanetly deleted.
