GIT-CLEAN(1)                      Git Manual                      GIT-CLEAN(1)



NAME
       git-clean - Remove untracked files from the working tree

SYNOPSIS
       git clean [-d] [-f] [-n] [-q] [-e <pattern>] [-x | -X] [--] <path>...


DESCRIPTION
       Cleans the working tree by recursively removing files that are not under version control, starting from the
       current directory.

       Normally, only files unknown to git are removed, but if the -x option is specified, ignored files are also
       removed. This can, for example, be useful to remove all build products.

       If any optional <path>... arguments are given, only those paths are affected.

OPTIONS
       -d
           Remove untracked directories in addition to untracked files. If an untracked directory is managed by a
           different git repository, it is not removed by default. Use -f option twice if you really want to remove
           such a directory.

       -f, --force
           If the git configuration variable clean.requireForce is not set to false, git clean will refuse to run
           unless given -f or -n.

       -n, --dry-run
           Don't actually remove anything, just show what would be done.

       -q, --quiet
           Be quiet, only report errors, but not the files that are successfully removed.

       -e <pattern>, --exclude=<pattern>
           In addition to those found in .gitignore (per directory) and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude, also consider these
           patterns to be in the set of the ignore rules in effect.

       -x
           Don't use the standard ignore rules read from .gitignore (per directory) and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude, but do
           still use the ignore rules given with -e options. This allows removing all untracked files, including build
           products. This can be used (possibly in conjunction with git reset) to create a pristine working directory
           to test a clean build.

       -X
           Remove only files ignored by git. This may be useful to rebuild everything from scratch, but keep manually
           created files.
