Update The URL Of A Remote

I just changed the name of a Github repository. One of the implications of this is that the remote URL that my local git repository has on record is now out of date. I need to update it.

If I use git-remote with the -v flag. I can see what remotes I currently have.

$ git remote -v
origin  git@github.com:jbranchaud/pokemon.git (fetch)
origin  git@github.com:jbranchaud/pokemon.git (push)

Now, to update the URL for that remote, I can use git remote set-url specifying the name of the remote and the updated URL.

$ git remote set-url origin git@github.com:jbranchaud/pokemon_deluxe.git

If I check again, I can see it has been updated accordingly.

$ git remote -v
origin  git@github.com:jbranchaud/pokemon_deluxe.git (fetch)
origin  git@github.com:jbranchaud/pokemon_deluxe.git (push)
