Reduce Android Studio Project Size

Questions:

I want to reduce Android Studio project size to save it for after use

In MS Visual Studio, we can delete *.ipch, *.sdf and Debug files to reduce the project size

I see app/build/intermediates folder is really large, can I delete this folder?

Thanks in advance!

How to&Answers:

Yes, you can safely delete the intermediates folder. You can even delete the whole build folder that contains intermediates.
The build folder and it’s contents will be re-generated the next time you run/build your project though.

Answer:

In Android Studio, go to the Terminal window. If you did not go to a different directory since you opened the IDE, you should find yourself on the top level of your project folder (something like ../Android Studio/projectname). There you simply type

./gradlew clean

That’s it. I just reduced my project folder size from 589 MB to 21 MB.

Answer:

The file .gitignore containted in the project created by AndroidStudio lists all files / patterns not to be stored in the git repository, i.e. those files that are not required for building the project. Therefore, it should be safe to remove all files / directories matching the patterns listed in the .gitignore file.

In my projects it lists:

*.iml
.gradle
/local.properties
/.idea/workspace.xml
/.idea/libraries
.DS_Store
/build
/captures
.externalNativeBuild

Answer:

Please find the batch file I use to do that.
Set the batch under the root of your project directories.
Hoping it helps.
