Script compatible with Android 2.3...8.1
Guaranteed delete will be only on CyanogenMod / LineageOS rom's and Nexus / Pixel firmware due of possible other file naming in manufacturer stock firmware.

Script removes apps from /system partition. Probably some of them was updated and additionally stored in internal memory.
So you need manually delete a bit of remainders as normal app.
Batch deleting available with root in Link2SD

Some bits of files can left on device (like important WebView), but almost all other will be removed.
Also here open source version of gapps (microG)

IMPORTANT!
Maybe some stuff or whole ROM will broken after applying this ZIP because modern firmwares very depends from gapps
– I've tried to remove as much possible Google-related files
– Before applying set Settings > Apps > Gear icon > Default apps > Voice & assist > both to "None" (source)
– Script removes Google Launcher, install 3rd-party app or device will not boot!
– Script removes stock Google keyboard, install 3rd party before applying!
– Script removes Google Dialer, install 3rd-party before applying!
– ...and many other apps
– Apps that display Google Maps can't be installed
– A lot of apps requests Google Play Store and Google Play Services which will be removed
– Network location will be unavailable because it's part of gapps
– Recommended to wipe dalvik-cache to rid out of unused odex-files

>>> Use it at your own risk and make full backup via recovery before flashing! <<<

great! down with google lagware!

Fascinating script!! Great work. I do have a little trouble and thought I'd ask.

My setup:
Google Pixel 3a
Latest Pie factory image installed
Magisk 20.4
TWRP 3.3.1-1

Note that I followed the directions by adding a Dialer, Keyboard, and Launcher.

The script wasn't removing anything until I changed each of the entries in the "delete.sh" file. For whatever reason, my phone's directory structure has an extra "system/" parent folder. Here is an example:
before: rm -rf /system/app/Gmail
after: rm -rf /system/system/app/Gmail

Now the script removes pretty much everything as far as I can tell my using the TWRP File Manager to browse. The issue now is that the phone won't boot all the way into system. Would anybody have an idea which of the missing apps might be causing the system to not boot?

There is an open source project, Bromite, that has a system apk to replace WebView. It is a privacy-focused build
