Exporting "node_modules" to github or local


#1

Hey, the “node_modules” folder is not being exported to github or local download. Any idea how to do it? Any answers are appreciated. (Need it because I am not able to install a specific package to locally when trying, and the developer of that package has been inactive for a week or so).

Why would you want to that? It is much quicker to just run npm install (or yarn install or bower install, depending on what package manager you’re using) when the project is downloaded.

Uploading node_modules folder to GitHub is also known as bad practice as it takes longer time to upload and download.
