re: How to delete ALL node_modules folders on your machine and free up HD space! VIEW POST


Since it wasn't mentioned in the article: npm tools such as pnpm (by @zkochan ) and yarn in PnP mode (or the upcoming Yarn v2) will keep a single copy of (each version of) a package you use across all your projects and just link them locally, saving you a ton of space without having to worry about deleting old npm_modules folders. PNPM also does a lot of cool other stuff, not my product, but I recommend it without reservation.


Great idea! I’ll have to do add notes about pnpm in there for folks to use in the future! Thanks for reminding me 🙌🙌
