Did you know how much space ignored files like
node_modules can add to your
Development folder? Well —in my case—, I happened to find more than 9 gigabytes of those files!
What's worse: that lot of files made my transfer via AirDrop an impossible task, due to the huge quantity of entries to be processed even before copying them.
So, in order to solve this, I coded a simple, yet elegant solution to address that issue.
The magical script
It's quite simple: recursively finds and
git cleans every folder that has a
.git folder inside it (thus, being a repo). If you adequately configure your repos, it'll save you thousands of gigs for your next migration.
