The plugin adds a "Sweep files" button to the main toolbar.
One or more directories of temporary files within the current project can be configured (in the plugin settings) to be emptied when sweeping. The plugin settings allow to delete also hidden files and directories, and to exclude some files/directories from being swept via ignore pattern.
