force-del

Force delete files or folders using globs

Package Version Downloads Status Build Status: Linux Coverage Status

If the matching files or folders are managed by git, theyʼll be deleted and marked as deleted in staging area. Otherwise, theyʼll be deleted permanently (not to the trash).

How does it work?

  • Filters the files that should be deleted by using globby
  • Maps the matching paths one-by-one to be included in git rm -rf command
  • Uses rimraf if the matching item isnʼt managed by git
  • These processes run concurrently

Installation

npm install force-del

Usage

const forceDel = require('force-del');
 
forceDel(['**/*.{gif,jpg}', 'oops/vids/*.3gp']).then(paths => {
  console.log('Deleted:\n', paths.join('\n'));
});
