How Completely Uninitialize (Remove) Git from your Project

When you initialize a git repository with git init, you create a hidden git directory (.git) inside your project directory.

To uninitialize (remove) git from your project directory, run this command in your Terminal/Command Line while inside your project directory:

rm -rf .git

The command above will completely delete git from your project, so only do this if you’re sure that’s what you want.
