gulp-rimraf status

rimraf plugin for gulp

Usage

  1. Delete a folder: use rimraf directly:
var rimraf = require('rimraf'); // rimraf directly
gulp.task('task', function (cb) {
    rimraf('./folder', cb);
});
  1. Delete some files in a folder: use gulp-rimraf
var ignore = require('gulp-ignore');
var rimraf = require('gulp-rimraf');

gulp.task('task', function() {
  return gulp.src('./**/*.js', { read: false }) // much faster
    .pipe(ignore('node_modules/**'))
    .pipe(rimraf());
});

Setting option read to false prevents gulp to read the contents of the files and makes this task much faster.

Files and folders outside the current working directory can be removed with force option.

var rimraf = require('gulp-rimraf');

gulp.task('task', function() {
  return gulp.src('../temp/*.js', { read: false })
    .pipe(rimraf({ force: true }));
});
