I am trying to uninstall hyperledger composer and I am running the following command:

npm uninstall -g composer-cli

npm uninstall -g composer-rest-server

npm uninstall -g generator-hyperledger-composer

npm uninstall -g yo

npm uninstall -g composer-playground

But I still see that it is not completely uninstalled. How to completely uninstall it?

You might have to uninstall/remove files from docker too. Try doing this:

To remove all docker containers and images:

docker kill $(docker ps -q)
docker rm $(docker ps -aq)
docker rmi $(docker images -q)

This will remove the docker files. But composer will other files too, you have to delete it. I have mentioned commands to delete different files/folders:

Composer cards folder 

$ rm -rf ~/.composer

Scripts and tools to create Fabric: 

$ rm -rf ~/.fabric-tools


$ sudo rm /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Remove docker: 

$ sudo apt-get remove docker-ce

Hope this helps!

Sir, I am getting permission denied error for this error

Hey @Rishi. Try using "sudo" before your command

It worked! Very silly of me not to think of using a root user. Thanks

After running the commands mentioned in the question, run the following command to business network card store:

$ rm -rf ~/.composer

This will delete all the keys and certificates of the hyperledger.
