Dependencies Hunter Unity3D Tool unity

stability-stable License: MIT Maintenance

This tool finds and/or deletes unreferenced assets in Unity project.

All code combined into one script for easier portability. So you can just copy-paste DependenciesHunter.cs to your project in any Editor folder.

How it works

At first, it calls


to form a map of all assets.

Then it uses:


to find dependencies for each of those assets. As a result dependencies map is formed.

Then it simply finds all assets which are not presented as a dependency within this map. Such assets considered as unused if they aren't marked as to be ignored in this analysis (by a list of RegExp patterns).


To enable addressables usage uncomment the first line.


Ways of usage

The tool has two ways to use it. Each has a menu option, and an editor window.

To list all unused assets in your project.. on "Tools/Dependencies Hunter" option which will open the "AllProjectAssetsReferencesWindow" window.

To then delete the assets you filtered on "Tools/Dependencies Hunter" and then click on Delete Unused Assets


To list all references towards selected assets.. the assets and use a context menu option "Find References in Project". It will open the "SelectedAssetsReferencesWindow" window with the results.
