NAME

       git-obliterate - rewrite past commits to remove some files

SYNOPSIS

       git obliterate <files...> [-- <rev-list options...>]

DESCRIPTION

       Completely  remove  some  files  from  the  repository,  including  past commits and tags.
       WARNING! This command will rewrite the history similar to  git  rebase(though  it  affects
       more). The rewritten history will have different object names for all the objects and will
       not converge with the original branch. So avoid using it on commits that you  shared.  And
       it will mess up stash, so don´t have stash when you run git obliterate.

OPTIONS

       You  can  pass  rev-list  options to indicate the range of commits affected. Those options
       need to be separated with ´--´ before them. Run git help rev-list to  see  the  acceptable
       options.

Examples

       Remove .secret from the repository:

           $ git obliterate .secret

       Remove .secret from commits between origin and feature:

           $ git obliterate .secret -- feature ^origin

       Remove .secret from commit abcdefg to commit 1234567

           $ git obliterate .secret -- abcdefg..1234567
