Do we need ‘codepress-admin-columns/src’ in the plugin? 4,715 files?

I have been running some updates and have been forced to upload plugins to a couple sites via ftp today. I noticed that this plugin has 5,129 files and takes longer to upload than all the other plugins combined! I checked it out of curiosity and found the ‘src’ directory which seems to contain tons and tons of node modules. In fact 4,715 of the files are in this dir, but it doesn’t look to be needed, I imagine it’s part of your build process, but could/should this be excluded from the final plugin files? It would make the upload go much faster for those having to use ftp (even against their will). Not to mention it accounts for 24.4MB of the 28.3MB. I may be totally off, but removing that dir locally the plugin seemed to work fine still, so what gives? Do all those files and kbs need to be included in the plugin?

Just a thought, it’s the little things, right?

I’m also having a related problem with this deep deep nesting of files. On my windows server, I’m unable to copy the dir… Error message

“The file name(s) would be too long for the destination folder. YOu can shorten the file name and try again, or try a location that has a shorter path.


54+ instances of this same error when copying the plugin to the plugins directory on my hosting server.

We did not package the release properly, these files should not be in the plugin. The source map contains mostly node modules, which we use to compile the stylesheet and scripts. There is a new release available now 3.4.4 which is packaged correctly.

Thanks for the bug report on this!
