Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-4871) CLI's node_modules take up almost 50 meg!
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2013 14:12:53 GMT


Braden Shepherdson commented on CB-4871:

And? The price of that storage is so low that I've already greatly exceeded the total by reading
this and responding.

I think a big part of the problem is duplication: CLI and Plugman both contain npm, I believe,
for example. But that's the nature of node modules, to duplicate rather than suffer the Dreaded
Diamond Dependency Problem, which I think is a win.

reduce the payload.
