Delete node_modules and free up your disk

I routinely (almost every month) see my Mac's disk space getting filled and the pesky notifications.

Mostly it's just node_modules eating your hard disk up. In the era of trying out all those cool projects by doing npm i leaves a heavy residue on your system.

Use npx npkill

This is an amazing CLI which shows you the space taken by each node_modules folder and can clean them up by hitting the spacebar key.

I forget this nifty npm module every single time (hopefully not anymore :P)
