No matter what version of npm you use, you likely have had
to destroy your node_modules folder and do a clean npm install to debug some
issue. This likely isn’t exclusive to npm either, but any package manager.
Regardless, here’s a quick friendly bash script to reinstall your node_modules
fresh, let you know when it’s done, and automatically run the previous command.
alias daggumnpm='rm -rf node_modules && npm i && say "Rerunning `!!` && !!'
If you’ve used node at all the first two commands should be straightforward.
rm: remove things. -rf means recursively destroy a directory.
npm i: alias for npm install
say "Rerunning \!!`": use your computers robot voice to audibly say Running
whatever that double exclamation point is.
