Unused files

I know the approximate size of your system is 40 MB. Why do you add all the extra files in the final package of the site?

Why SS is so huge in file size to Download

Don’t know where you get 40MB from. The /vendor/silverstripe directory alone is 242.4MB inside there /admin is 45.4 MB.


I’m guessing the git history is included in this download for the silverstripe repos and all their dependencies, which might make up a substantial/majority portion of the file size.


Yes, I think that too (I do not want to download such beast just to check :slight_smile:).

I opened an issue on GitHub because I think this is just an oversight (4.3.0 packages were 14 and 11 Mb).


oh. I just posted a new query reg this. I am a total newbie to SS, comnig from ProcessWire background
