Removing all node_modules folders

NPM is a great package manager, but with many projects setup in a dev folder, the size of all these packages can get quite large.

To trim down the size of my dev folder I’ll run this command to recursively remove any node_modules folder and its contents.

Remove node_modules recursively

find . -name "node_modules" -exec rm -rf '{}' +

For the projects I’m actively working in or revisiting I can just run npm install again in their directory to get back the packages I need.
