I have a Git repo that I have deleted four files from using
git rm), and my Git status looks like this:
# deleted: file1.txt # deleted: file2.txt # deleted: file3.txt # deleted: file4.txt
How do I remove these files from Git without having to manually go through and add each file like this:
git rm file1 file2 file3 file4
Ideally, I’m looking for something that works in the same way that
git add . does, if that’s possible.
For Git 1.x
$ git add -u
This tells git to automatically stage tracked files — including deleting the previously tracked files.
For Git 2.0
To stage your whole working tree:
$ git add -u :/
To stage just the current path:
$ git add -u .
