Reset React Native Cache (Watchman Cache, Bundler Cache, Build Artifacts, etc) with react-native-clean-project

I used to drag a little shell script around between each React Native project that cleaned out various cache directories (Watchman Cache, Bundler Cache, Build Artifacts, Yarn Cache, etc.) for me. A better alternative is the react-native-clean-project you can use.

Cleans your React Native project by purging caches and modules, and reinstalling them again.

Installation per NPM/Yarn:

yarn add -D react-native-clean-project

Once installed it’s recommended to add these script to your package.json

  "scripts": {
    "clean": "react-native clean-project",
    "clean:auto": "react-native clean-project-auto"

Now simply run yarn clean whenever you need to.
