nextstrain remote delete

Delete datasets and narratives on a remote source.

A remote source URL specifies what to delete, e.g. to delete the “beta-cov” dataset in the Nextstrain Group “blab”:

The –recursively option allows for deleting multiple datasets or narratives at once, e.g. to delete all the “ncov/wa/…” datasets in the “blab” group:
