If there is one thing I do a lot of in Git, it’s merging branches and then deleting them. I have this thing for merged branches laying around. It drives me nuts. I like to keep my repo as clean as I can.
So, I created a small shell script that I can call and pass a branch name to that merges the branch and then deletes the branch in one step.
If you want to use it, place it in your path and make it executable.
