Lots of upload caused by npm_modules with iCloud Drive on

Few weeks ago, I had iCloud Drive upload issue with npm_modules folder.
At first, my laptop was using lots of resources on uploading npm_modules folder, which stops other files from being upload.

I’ve searched on the internet and found solution: create npm_modules.nosync and symlink to npm_modules.

But if we can automatically repeat those steps when typing ‘npm install’, It would be lot more easier to use with iCloud Drive.

Any suggestions apreciated. Thank you!


We’re hoping tink will solve a lot of the problems around this stuff!


I’d look in to that :smiley:
