After running 'ionic build android' I usually keep a copy of the whole project directoy on Dropbox by previously compressing it. Nevertheless, as the project evolves it gets bigger and bigger, reaching now 100 MB. As I am out for vacation and running on a 4G network, I prefer to save my GBs... Is there a command to clean all these byproduct files I don't need?.
Thanks in advance
You should use git to save and version your files.
It's a basic practise in programming and with it you can say which files/folders to ignore.
To answer to your question :
The files that you need to remove are the binaries (the files that are generated) and dependencies. You can retrieve them by lauching another build. This are the following folders :
node_modules/ platforms/ plugins/
Don't forget to do an
ionic state save before removing the plugins.
After you will need to do
ionic state restore to restore yours platforms/plugins.
