Codeintel folder is huge


The codeintel folder is really huge - 2 GB. Most of the stuff is inside the php and javascript subfolder.

Can I safely delete these folders? I guess that Komodo will simply rebuild them when needed?


Yes, you can delete this folder.

Just make sure Komodo is not running when you delete it. The next time you start Komodo it will start rebuilding it, meaning codeintel will not work until it has done so.

Komodo indexes whatever you throw at it (files, projects) so if you are working with huge projects your index will likewise be huge. Setting up excludes in particular is important when it comes to working with large projects.

Thanks to both of you. I have deleted the folder and everything seems Ok.

Actually, I found that due to the many small files, I freed nearly 5 GB by deleting the folder.
