.npmignore should be placed in the root directory of your package. By your example I assume that it is not (i.e., under lib/static/.npmignore)

You don’t want the exclamation point starting that line. It negates the pattern, and I think that will mean exclude everything except this file. The opposite of what you are trying to do.

i know where .npmignore should put

but /lib/static/.npmignore this file is tpl file for create new module

im doing something like this

fs.copy('./lib/static', target_path)
