If you do a significant amount of programming, you'll probably end up with
build artifacts scattered about.
sniff is a tool to help you find those
artifacts. It's especially useful when you're writing build systems,
because you can make sure your
clean command gets everything.
The easiest way to install for Linux or Windows is to download a binary from the releases page.
If your platform doesn't have binaries, get cargo. Then:
$ cargo install file-sniffer
If you want the absolute latest version:
$ cargo install --git https://github.com/vmchale/file-sniffer
Make sure you are on nightly; if in doubt run
rustup run nightly cargo install file-sniffer
FISH_COMPLETIONS_DIR, you can use the
fish features like so:
$ cargo install --features fish file-sniffer
sniff looks for files that either have an extension associated with artifacts
or executable files listed in the relevant
Search current directory for directories with build artifacts:
$ sniff ar
$DIR for build artifacts and sort by size:
$ sniff ar $DIR --sort
Look for artifacts or directories containing artifacts that occupy more than 1GB of disk space:
$ sniff ar -t1G
To turn off colorized output:
- find "likely build artifact" directories
- use .gitignore/path to make decision
- smart output (only first few files per dir)
- match speed of gnu utils on traversals
- faster when finding artifacts
- faster with excludes
- faster on small directories
- beat du on large directories
- colorized output
- sort results by size
The intent is to support basically anything, so if your DOC is not on the list, feel free to open a PR or start an issue.

These are still very much works in progress; as of now errors and warnings are still in English. Binaries will be available once things stabilize.
