Ruby script to remove svn folders

This code is so useful and pretty easy too when we want to remove recursively recursive the .svn folders from a project we want to send.

The credit of the original code is @HelgeG guy

This was only enhanced to make a warning first and count the kills, still under testing.

require 'find'
require 'fileutils'

puts "\n\t\t\t! WARNING !\n\nYou are about to remove .SVN from this folder and all sub-folders"
puts "# This program is to be used on a backup folder, no way back! \nCONTINUE?"
resp = gets

if resp.include?('s') || resp.include?('y')
	i = 0
	Find.find('./') do |path|
	  if File.basename(path) == '.svn'
		FileUtils.remove_dir(path, true)
		i += 1
	puts "#{i} .svn folders were deleted along with their juice.."
	sleep 3
puts "Bye"
sleep 1

Use on your own Risk!

  1. What is SVN?
    Its stand for: ‘Subversion’, a system where one, or a team, can merge code and keep old versions of the same code, the leader may create ‘branches’ where a project split in different ways, there are a lot of other cool tools people can use in SVN, as history, diff etc.
