Hi @ItsJustpk!

You can access hidden folders like node_modules by using the console that you can access from within the Status pane revealed when you click on the Status button under your project’s name. From there you have access to a bash console and can edit files accordingly.

That said, node_modules is a shared folder location in Glitch, so there are some caveats that have to be taken into account when attempting to edit those files. Here are two threads that discuss two approaches to the task:

In both cases make sure you read the entire thread because things have evolved as time has passed, so only the whole thread gives a complete overview and what’s currently needed.

Hope this helps, and happy Glitching!
