How do i remove a git repository off my repl

i accidentally created a git repository and I don’t know how to remove it does anyone know how to remove it?

I don’t think you need to remove it. All it does is give version control. It’s a free feature.

oh so it doesnt post the git? or repl

Git on Replit does not equal Github. You can use Git by Replit or use a Github repository. Is this connected to Github? Can you rephrase your question?

i was wondering what it was and accidentally turned it on I’m not trying to connect it to github

It’s just version control AFAIK.

Should be a good thing.

Then if shouldn’t do anything negative. That just means you’re using the Git that is built-in to Replit.

If you don’t add a git remote, then it’ll just let you keep track of previous versions of your repl without depending on replit’s unreliable and buggy file history.

The git2 UI should work perfectly without a git remote. If you want to have a remote backup, you could use a git server other than github with it (e.g. or , or a gitea server on a repl).

If you want to remove the git repository for some reason in the future (e.g. if you are publically sharing a fork of the repl that you don’t want there to be history for), just run rm -rf .git/ in the shell (although doing that will permanently delete the history, so it’d probably be good to make a fork of the repl as a backup before doing that).


it didnt delete the history but it did remove the git
