Optimize the local Git repository

Is your Git repository getting bloated? Maybe you've seen a significant increase in the repository size, or you're experiencing performance issues. One way to address this is by optimizing the local repository.

Using git gc --prune=now --aggressive, you can garbage collect loose objects in the repository. This command will optimize the repository by removing unnecessary objects and compressing the repository data.

# Usage: git gc --prune=now --aggressive

git gc --prune=now --aggressive
# Optimizes the local repository
💬 Note

The command might take a minute to run, so hang back and let Git do its magic. Once it's done, you should see an optimized repository with improved performance.
