For example, if you needed to cleanup any generated files, e.g. from a build runner, automatically after
melos clean is ran, you can add a
# melos.yaml # ... scripts: postclean: rm packages/foo/lib/src/generated_file.g.dart # ...
Another common use case is to run
flutter clean in all Flutter packages;
# melos.yaml # ... scripts: # Runs "flutter clean" in all Flutter packages (`--flutter`) # with a concurrency of 3 at a time (`--concurrency=3`). postclean: > melos exec --flutter --concurrency=3 -- "flutter clean" # ...
