V10 puts 420MB of binaries in source control...?

August 19, 2021 - 10:32am #1

Vuforia SDK Version: 10.0.12 -

Description with steps to reproduce: I just installed the 10.0.12 update (from 9.something) in Unity with the update package.

It has placed not one, but two copies of the 210MB com.ptc.vuforia.engine-10.0.12.tgz archive in the source controlled folders Packages/ and Assets/Editor/Migration/.

What's up with that and how do I get rid of both of those? I'm not checking those into our git repos, my assumption is that they should be downloaded if they aren't in the local package cache, like every other package. -

Development OS (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux): Windows 10 64-bit -

Mobile OS and Version: Multiple -

Mobile Device Manufacturer and Model name: Multiple -

Do the Vuforia Sample Applications show the same behavior?: N/A

Hey both,

 

I have not been able to reproduce the issue where there's a second tarball (.tgz) file is inside Assets/Editor/Migration/.

Unity requires the added Vuforia Engine package as a tarball file (com.ptc.vuforia.engine-10.x.tgz) in the Packages/ folder. This approach was chosen by our R&D due to the fact that developers had issues adding Vuforia Engine to their projects with Git.

This is supposed to make it easier to import Vuforia Engine, but I can totally understand this also creates new issues, especially with developers using version control systems. My previous comment is the only solution to circumvent the large file issue. 

Once again, apologies for the late response! 

 

Kind regards,

Hey there,

 

I am so sorry for not responding in time. Your thread slipped through and did not circle back to respond. I realised that I did not receive a response from our R&D and will check again.

In the meantime my two cents are that you should either add a .gitignore or use Git Large File Storage.

 

Kind regards,

Any follow ups?

Hey,

 

Totally makes sense. I will check it out myself and raise this to our R&D team!

Thanks for pointing out.

(Btw, having those files in there also means that GitHub users can no longer use GitHub for their projects, since it has a 100MB file size limit on individual files in repos. That's... kind of a big deal. Fortunately we're not using GitHub but this is one more major issue with those TGZ archives.)
