How to update remote branch list on local machine?

Leave a comment Standard

I can never remember how do to this, lol. Probably because I don’t use it often enough but since I was looking for it today I thought I’d be nice and share.

If you are sure that remote server repo contains more branches and they are not shown when you type

$ git branch -a


$ git branch -r

Then you have to update your remote list, by:

$ git remote update origin –prune

Assuming your remote is named as origin (This is true most of times).
