make-space npm version Build Status

⚡️ Fast, lightweight, simple: Less than 1 MB, no dependencies[1]. make-space downloads and runs in 5 seconds!

👨‍💻 Focused on developers: Finds ways to free up space that other tools don't, such as clearing npm, Homebrew, Xcode, Yarn caches and removing unnecessary Docker images!

📦 No installation needed: You just need a newer version of npm. Then you can just type npx make-space!

How to use

$ npx make-space
Why use npx?
  • Just one command which is cool!
  • With npx, you don't have to install the tool, saving you more space.
  • Whenever you execute it, you get the newest version.
  • The npx binary is included with npm 5.2 and above.
  • You can also use a normal npm install or install make-space with yarn:
    $ npm install -g make-space
    $ make-space
    $ yarn add --global make-space
    $ make-space

To free up space, we employ a variety of different strategies. Small savings add up! All strategies that are implemented are also documented on the website.

What ideas do you have to make space?

We would love if you send us pull requests with new strategies to free up even more space!

Here are some instructions on how to do so!

1) The version that is published on npm is bundled with webpack and then minified, which means you don't need to install the dependencies!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
