How to uninstall a library from a node project? 1

To uninstall a package you have previously installed locally (using npm install <package-name> in the node_modules folder, run following in your project terminal:



npm uninstall <package-name>



This command will remove the library from node_modules folder and it will also remove the reference in the package.json file.


If the package is installed globally, you need to add the -g / --global flag:



npm uninstall -g <package-name>



for example:



npm uninstall -g bcrypt



and you can run this command from anywhere you want on your system because the folder where you currently are does not matter.
