Delete old files in Laravel apps

Latest Version on Packagist Software License Build Status Quality Score StyleCI Total Downloads

This package will delete old files from directories. You can use a configuration file to specify the maximum age of a file in a certain directory.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/laravel-directory-cleanup

In Laravel 5.5 the service provider will automatically get registered. In older versions of the framework just add the service provider in config/app.php file:

'providers' => [
    ...
    Spatie\DirectoryCleanup\DirectoryCleanupServiceProvider::class,

];

Next, you must publish the config file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\DirectoryCleanup\DirectoryCleanupServiceProvider"

This is the content of the published config file laravel-directory-cleanup

return [

    'directories' => [

        /*
         * Here you can specify which directories need to be cleanup. All files older than
         * the specified amount of minutes will be deleted.
         */

        /*
        'path/to/a/directory' => [
            'deleteAllOlderThanMinutes' => 60 * 24,
        ],
        */
    ],

    /*
     * If a file is older than the amount of minutes specified, a cleanup policy will decide if that file
     * should be deleted. By default every file that is older that the specified amount of minutes
     * will be deleted.
     * 
     * You can customize this behaviour by writing your own clean up policy.  A valid policy
     * is any class that implements `Spatie\DirectoryCleanup\Policies\CleanupPolicy`.
     */
    'cleanup_policy' => \Spatie\DirectoryCleanup\Policies\DeleteEverything::class,
];

Usage

Specify the directories that need cleaning in the config file.

When running the console command clean:directories all files in the specified directories older then deleteAllOlderThanMinutes will be deleted. Empty subdirectories will also be deleted.

This command can be scheduled in Laravel's console kernel.

// app/Console/Kernel.php

protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
{
   $schedule->command('clean:directories')->daily();
}

Writing a custom clean up policy

If you want to apply additional conditional logic before a file is deleted, you can replace the default cleanup_policy with a custom one. Create a class which implements Spatie\DirectoryCleanup\Policies\CleanupPolicy and add your logic to the shouldDelete method.

// app/CleanupPolicies/MyPolicy.php

namespace App\CleanupPolicies;

use Symfony\Component\Finder\SplFileInfo;
use Spatie\DirectoryCleanup\Policies\CleanupPolicy;

class MyPolicy implements CleanupPolicy
{
    public function shouldDelete(SplFileInfo $file) : bool
    {
        $filesToKeep = ['robots.txt'];

        return ! in_array($file->getFilename(), $filesToKeep);
    }
}
