profile-cleaner(1)                                            profile-cleaner(1)



NAME
       profile-cleaner - Reduce the size of browser and some email program's
       profiles by organizing their sqlite databases using sqlite3's vacuum and
       reindex functions. The term "browser" is used loosely since profile-
       cleaner happily works on some email clients too.

SYNOPSIS
       profile-cleaner [option]


DESCRIPTION
       Profile-cleaner is a very simple shell script that will invoke sqlite3 to
       vacuum and reindex databases belonging to supported browsers and email
       clients. It is compatible with profile-sync-daemon so users need not stop
       psd before calling profile-cleaner. In fact, profiles will clean much
       faster when they are synced to tmpfs via psd.

              *Profile-cleaner will parse the respective profiles.ini file and
              clean all profiles defined therein.

CONFIG FILE
       Profile-cleaner will create $HOME/.config/profile-cleaner.conf the first
       time it is invoked. Users may define a color scheme therein based on
       their terminal background color. The default is a dark scheme for dark
       colored terminals. The file is commented and self-explanatory.

EXAMPLES
       Clean all firefox profiles:

        $ profile-cleaner f

              Clean chromium profile:

        $ profile-cleaner c

              Clean the user defined profile:

        $ profile-cleaner p /path/to/profile
