I started to use typescript and nodejs more frequently in my latest projects due to CDK. However, I didn’t realise the side effects especially on node modules folder…
Yes, it is 18.42GB of dependency code just sitting in different POC projects 😬
I’m now thinking about how to improve the storage efficiency of these tiny POC projects. 🧐
Most probably I better start building on CI server more frequently and possibly avoid building on my laptop whenever I can?
Regardless…. It is the heaviest object in the universe, node modules folder!
I patiently waited for all of the bin being empty and this is what I remember last… I might have passed out after reaching the escape velocity 😂
