Can I remove xolvio_cucumber?


Is this package part of the Meteor core,or can I remove it?


You can remove any packages you want, including Meteor core packages. Not sure what you’re really asking since there isn’t much context.


Just that this one is taking up 600MB on disk, so looking to free-up some space. I wasn’t sure if it was part of the velocity package that I once downloaded quite a while back (and never really used) or whether it formed a more integral part of Meteor (perhaps it was introduced into 1,3, for example).


Like I said in the other thread, you can actually delete literally any package and Meteor will re-download it if you use it. Even if you delete meteor it will be fine.


When you first run meteor create, these are the packages added to the app, so these are Meteor’s “core.” But as @sashko said, you can remove any that you want. You’ll either get them back if needed, or you can replace it.
