git status On branch master nothing to commit, working directory clean
git log --oneline
Is it possible to create a new branch with no commits?
It is possible with the
orphan option, you definitely can!
git checkout --orphan orphan
Switched to a new branch 'orphan'
Delete all your existing files:
git rm -rf .
And now you have a branch with zero commits and files.
git status On branch orphan Initial commit nothing to commit (create/copy files and use "git add" to track)
