To do this in Git, we can create a new branch as an
orphan. What is an orphan branch? It is a new branch without any commit.
Please note that you need to install Git v1.7.2 or higher in order to use
--orphan option in the git command.
OK, here is step by step how to create a new empty branch:
1. Create an orphan branch
git checkout --orphan mybranch
2. Delete everything in the branch
git rm -rf .
3. Make some changes & commit
touch test.txt git add test.txt git commit -m "Adding a test file"
4. Push commits made on the local branch to the remote repository
git push origin mybranch
