Detoxify is a Ruby script created for the sole purpose of removing any traces left by version control systems on a project directory. Those traces include hidden directories and files.


  • All hidden directories and files left by version control systems are completely removed.
  • It's a straightforward code, with a very small size and footprint. Code is pretty clean and concise.
  • It's written using only methods available in the standard Ruby library. No need of third party gems.
  • Since it's written on an interpreted language, it works on the major operating systems, as long as a Ruby interpreter is available.
  • It currently supports the following version control systems: CVS, Subversion, Git and Mercurial. Other version control systems can be added.
