Git command that shows which remote branches have been pruned?

In my local repository, I ran git fetch --prune to remove all the branches that have been merged into master. And, therefore, no longer exist.

Is there a command that shows which remote branches have been merged and removed?

Try this command:

git branch -vv

It will display gone next to any local branches that have been pruned from the remote repository.

The git-removed-branches NPM package works well for this.

Install it globally:

npm install -g git-removed-branches

And use it like this:

git removed-branches

That will list the local branches that are no longer available on the remote repo.

You can remove them by adding the --prune flag:

git removed-branches --prune
