How can I delete a model repository

Sorry if this is a duplicate thread.
Thanks for this beautiful platform for sharing our models and datasets.

My question is, how can I delete a model repository from huggingface model hub?

Thanks in advance.

To delete a model repository, right now you need to do it in code from the transformers library and do something like:

from transformers.hf_api import HfApi


We’ll ship a UI to do it directly from the website in the coming days, though. (cc @pierric @thomwolf)

amazing. thanks @julien-c for letting me know.

Note: Problem encountered after deleting a model using the website:
(I am assuming that ‘project’ and ‘model’ are synonyms)

If a model is created with the same name again,the project (model) is created. However on attempt to load data, the following error occurs:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/home/vv/git/hf/venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/huggingface_hub/”, line 359, in git_pull
File “/usr/lib/python3.8/”, line 516, in run
raise CalledProcessError(retcode, process.args,
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command ‘[‘git’, ‘pull’]’ returned non-zero exit status 128.

I have tried this twice, and finally ended up creating a model with a different name. So it appears that model deletion still leaves some remnants that lead to this issue.
