I am trying out application development with Quickly but I have a couple of projects that I have come to nothing and I want to completely remove them.

Is there a command to do that?

I do not now if my approach is the best practice!

But if you have performed a quickly install in the directory beforehand!

Then i would cd to the directory and run : quickly uninstall Then cd .. and do rm -rf . This approach works for me! ;)

There is no quickly uninstall command so I used apt-get purge quickly the removed to project folders as suggested. The reinstalled quickly. – Tony Apr 22 '12 at 21:33
Oh sorry, the uninstall command is for when you working with ubuntu-lenses ;) - then just remove the folder! ;) You do not have to apt-get remove --purge quickly each time . – Mstendorf Apr 23 '12 at 12:55

I assume that all project files are stored in one folder. The following command wil do the trick

# rm -rv /path/to/project/folder
