Can I remove xolvio_cucumber?


#1

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


#2

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


#3

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).


#4

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.


#5

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.
