Did you check in the code? Because then you can revert to the commit prior to the one you made the changes to.

In order to clean node_modules you need to execute 2 steps:
1) rm -rf node_modules/
2) npm i

Step 1) removes node_modules folder with all its content from the app
Step 2) re-installs all packages specified in package.json file

Now your app will have a clean node_modules folder with just the needed packages installed.

If you discard to before you started and then clean the node_modules folder and then run npm install and then run your project you should be fine.
