Remove tests & documentation from the vendor dir. Based on laravel-vendor-cleanup but implemented as a Composer Plugin instead of a Laravel command.
Usually disk size shouldn't be a problem, but when you have to use FTP to deploy or have very limited disk space, you can use this package to cut down the vendor directory by deleting files that aren't used in production (tests/docs etc).

Please submit a PR to src/CleanupRules.php to add more rules for packages. Make sure you test them first, sometimes tests dirs are classmapped and will error when deleted.
