Git: Rename branch
Rename Git local branch
This can be done from any branch within the repository.
git branch -m <old-branch-name> <new-branch-name>
However, you can ommit the
old-branch-name if it is currently checked out locally.
Rename Git remote branch
First rename the branch locally. Then we need to remove the old branch
git push origin --delete <old-branch-name>
and push the new branch name
git push origin -u <new-branch-name>
