mac default iconFontNuke For Mac Publisher's description

Mac OS X. Fonts. Font Caches. ERRR! Having the aforementioned as part of my daily grind

Mac OS X. Fonts. Font Caches. ERRR! Having the aforementioned as part of my daily grind, enough is enough and frustration sets in! So I made a tool to make my life easier.

Solution? FontNuke.
FontNuke is a free utility application for Mac OS X 10.4.x+ (Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard) that removes corrupt and troublesome font cache files. I created this application as a tool for my personal use at the office, and has become very useful for me. To grant individual non-admin users the ability to remove font cache files, without my involvement--is HUGE! Not to mention intelligent application quitting, plus a GUARANTEED reboot, makes my life easier. FontNuke removes system font caches (Mac OS X font cache files), Adobe font caches (*.lst), Microsoft Office font caches, and now also (as of version 1.0.6) QuarkXPress 6.x/7.x font cache files.

I formerly had shell scripts installed on my clients, and would log in via SSH, then execute my cache removal script each and every time the clients had a font issue. That gets old fast, so rather than continue to work that way, I assembled FontNuke.

I made this application for myself, and I'm just posting it here to share. On top of the fact I like free things, so hey...why not keep it free! If FontNuke is useful to anyone else, please--help yourself. I take no responsibility for any products of misuse.

FontNuke has been an indispensible tool for me. Especially as a sysadmin with non-admin users experiencing font cache issues. Empowering users with tools to remain productive is what I'm all about.

I have recently added an option which purges spotlight indexes on startup volume from /.Spotlight-V100. This has been added due to some intermittent unresponsiveness when searching network volumes for some of my MCX clients.
