Delete Old GitHub Forks

Created on .

Read in 1 minute.

Was browsing through my GitHub repositories and realized I have an embarrassing number of forks. A lot of these contain code that is either out of date or not even valid anymore. I used the following to quickly cleanup these repositories that I created before 2021-01-01.

gh search repos \
--owner jpoehnelt \
--created="<2021-01-01" \
--include-forks=only \
--json url \
--jq ".[] .url" \
| xargs -I {} \
gh repo delete {} \

You may need to refresh your auth with the delete_repo scope.

gh auth refresh -h -s delete_repo
