These folder and files are generated by python. You should add these to your VCS’s ignore file. But if you need to clean these manually, you can do with the command below:
find . | grep -E "(__pycache__|\.pyc|\.pyo$)" | xargs rm -rf

recursively in the current directory. If you are using this command a lot, you
should think about adding it to your *sh alias list.
Note: For Python 3, you only need to remove
__pycache__ folder because .pyc
files are inside them.
Alternative: You can prevent the generation of the file in the development using the environment variable below:
