What is npx npkill?
When building JS projects we tend to quickly build projects and forget about them. Say in the future you move on with the idea and behind the scenes, the node_modules folder is taking a lot of space on our disk. We know space is cheap but why not save it when we can. In order to delete all the unwanted node_modules directories run
npx npkill in your cmd prompt. If it is not installed it will first ask us to install it or we can do it by typing
npm i -g npkill in cmd prompt.
-g option is for global install, not project-specific. Once done you will be presented with these options
then all we need to do is hit the space bar and it will delete the node_modules directory. In the future, if we come back to the idea all we need to do is
npm install and we are good to go. You can learn more about this tool here. Go save some space to build the next billion-dollar idea. Happy learning happy coding.
