gulp-clean Build Status NPM version

Removes files and folders.

Install

Install with npm.

npm install --save-dev gulp-clean

Examples

var gulp = require('gulp');
var clean = require('gulp-clean');

gulp.task('default', function () {
	return gulp.src('app/tmp', {read: false})
		.pipe(clean());
});

Option read:false prevents gulp from reading the contents of the file and makes this task a lot faster. If you need the file and its contents after cleaning in the same stream, do not set the read option to false.

var gulp = require('gulp');
var clean = require('gulp-clean');

gulp.task('default', function () {
	return gulp.src('app/tmp/index.js')
		.pipe(clean({force: true}))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));
});
For safety files and folders outside the current working directory can be removed only with option force set to true.

Clean as a dependency:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var clean = require('gulp-clean');

gulp.task('clean-scripts', function () {
  return gulp.src('app/tmp/*.js', {read: false})
    .pipe(clean());
});

gulp.task('scripts', ['clean-scripts'], function () {
  gulp.src('app/scripts/*.js')
    .pipe(gulp.dest('app/tmp'));
});

gulp.task('default', ['scripts']);

Make sure to return the stream so that gulp knows the clean task is asynchronous and waits for it to terminate before starting the dependent one.
