Uninstall Indigo

If you’d like to completely remove all traces of Indigo, follow all steps below. Step d) may be considered optional, as the files involved are comparatively small.

👋 We’re sad that Indigo didn’t work out for you. Please let us know in the forums if you have any feedback.

a) Remove the Indigo Helper Tool

If you still have the Indigo app:

  1. launch Indigo and open its preferences
  2. in the “Advanced” preference pane, select “Uninstall” to uninstall the Indigo Helper tool

Otherwise, without the Indigo app:

  1. launch the Terminal
  2. run these commands to remove the Indigo Helper tool:
    sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.marmaladesoul.IndigoHelper.plist
    sudo rm -f /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.marmaladesoul.IndigoHelper.plist
    sudo rm -f /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.marmaladesoul.IndigoHelper

b) Remove the Indigo stacks and libraries folders

  1. using the Terminal, run these commands:
    rm -rf "~/.indigo"
    sudo rm -rf "/usr/local/Indigo"

c) Remove Indigo’s trusted root certificate

  1. open the Keychain Access app
  2. under “System Keychains” select “System”
  3. find Indigo’s mkcert certificate and delete it

d) Remove preferences and log files (optional)

  1. using the Terminal, run these commands:

    sudo defaults delete com.marmaladesoul.Indigo
    sudo rm -rf "~/Library/Application Support/com.marmaladesoul.Indigo"
    sudo rm -rf "~/Library/Logs/com.marmaladesoul.Indigo"
    sudo rm -rf "~/Library/Preferences/com.marmaladesoul.Indigo.plist"
    sudo rm -rf "/var/log/com.marmaladesoul.IndigoHelper"
    sudo rm -rf "/private/var/log/com.marmaladesoul.IndigoHelper"

e) Clear user defaults

If you’re deleting an old copy of Indigo to start clean with a fresh copy, you will need to perform step d above, then clear the existing user defaults.

Mac app preferences are served by cfprefsd, and removing an app’s underlying data file (as in step d) does not make it unavailable until your Mac is restarted. Alternatively, you can quit cfprefsd; it will automatically restart without Indigo’s preferences.

killall -u $USER cfprefsd
