KODI ADDON - CLEAN UP TEMPORARY
FILES & OTHER STUFF
by Dalibor Lanik
KCLEANER - CLEAN UP TEMPORARY FILES & OTHER STUFFThere are a few cleaning addons, but none clean everything. Some are not maintained and all functions don't work. So I ended up using 3 different cleaning addons. And then I decided to write my own, and add a few things no other cleaning addon has.
For the time being, it cleans: Temp/Cache, Packages, Thumbnails, ATV downloaded files, Addons
There are 9 addons which are cleaned, I tried to find ones that collect the most garbage, temporary files, or just a lot of files over time. These include some that might actually be useful like "ArtistSlideshow" that collects a lot of images. If you need these images, then don't run the Addon cleanup - but anyways they would be downloaded again, so they can be considered cache files.
If you have device that is running low on space, cleaning all the downloaded stuff and cache with a single press can be useful - and about the only option you have!
The list of supported addons:
Latest version can also check if you have any repositories installed that are unnecessary because you don't have any addons from these repositories and you can uninstall them. You can also check if any addons were installed from zip files and don't have repository assigned (you will never get updates).
As well as cleaning, this addon can compact your databases. Over time, Kodi databases get bigger and bigger and it is good to perform compress once in a while.
You can run any section separately or everything at once. At the end you will get report with stats how much Mb was recovered and what was cleaned/checked.
In order to install it, first install my REPO: Lanik Repo
Then install add-on, no configuration needed.
