Clearing Cache

The bit clear-cache command removes the following:

  1. Bit's compiled code (compiled as part of V8's Just-in-Time compilation). Caching is optimized using the v8-compile-cache package.

  2. Components cache on the filesystem:

  • The parsed component docs (e.g, prop types)
  • The results for the dependency detection and resolution (saved in .git/bit/components/deps/).
  1. The scope's index file .git/bit/index.json, which maps the component-id:object-hash.
$ bit clear-cache
the following cache(s) have been cleared:
  ✔ v8-compile-cache code
  ✔ components cache on the filesystem
  ✔ scope-index file
