Quickly Delete Vercel Projects

I recently needed to delete a large number of projects that I had hosted on Vercel. It became time-consuming to type out the name of each project and manually delete it, so I wrote a script to automate this process. I hope this script will be helpful to others who may be in a similar situation.
// Opens the settings menu var settingsButton = document.querySelector('a[data-testid="submenu/settings"]'); settingsButton.click(); // wait for the page to load. setTimeout(startDelete, 700); function startDelete() { // Target the delete button var deleteButton = document.querySelector('button.geist-themed.geist-error.geist-error-fill'); // click button deleteButton.click(); // wait for the popup setTimeout(deleteProject, 700); } function deleteProject() { // get the project's name var text = document.querySelectorAll('label>div>p>b')[0].innerText; // get the "delete my project text" var text2 = document.querySelectorAll('label>div>p>b')[1].innerText; // Type the text var input = document.querySelector('input[data-testid="resource-deletion-modal/name-input"]'); input.value = text; var input2 = document.querySelector('input[data-testid="resource-deletion-modal/verification-input"]'); input2.value = text2; // click the confirm delete button var confirmButton = document.querySelector('button[data-testid="resource-deletion-modal/confirm-button"]'); confirmButton.click(); }
Using this script is straightforward. First, navigate to the project you want to delete on Vercel. Then, open the browser's console by pressing F12 or right-clicking and selecting "Inspect Element." Finally, paste the script into the console and run it to delete the project.

Using This Script

To begin using this script navigate to your Vercel Dashboard and select the project you want to delete.
