Clear angular cache in .angular folder

You can configure caching options of cli in angular.json file. One of options is cache which gives you the option of disabling it.

  "$schema": "./node_modules/@angular/cli/lib/config/schema.json",
  "version": 1,
  "cli": {
    "cache": {
      "enabled": false
  "projects": {}

You can disable it by running this command too:

ng config cli.cache.enabled false
  • To clear the cache on Unix-based operating systems:
rm -rf .angular/cache
  • To clear the cache on Windows:
rmdir /s /q .angular/cache

Update (10th, Aug 2022):

For Angular 14 and up, you can now clear, enable and disable cache config by running these commands:


ng cache clean

// Deletes persistent disk cache from disk.


ng cache disable
ng cache off

// Disables persistent disk cache for all projects in the workspace.


ng cache enable
ng cache on

You can find out more about it in docs.
