How to delete local untracked files ?
Show what will be deleted with the
git clean -f -n
Then - beware: this will delete files - run:
git clean -f
If you want to also remove directories, run
git clean -f -d or
git clean -fd
If you just want to remove ignored files, run
git clean -f -X or
git clean -fX
If you want to remove ignored as well as non-ignored files, run
git clean -f -x or
git clean -fx
Note the case difference on the
X for the two latter commands.
clean.requireForce is set to "true" (the default) in your configuration, then unless you specify
-f nothing will actually happen.
