Node modules has a tendency to become huge as some libraries depend on 50 other libraries but only use a function or two from each
gintko16905dI think it’s not relatable anymore, because the problem, joke was about, was solved. Anyway, a few years ago npm dependencies was stored in recursive approach, in other words, each dependency had it’s own separate copy of it’s dependencies. So node_modules became so deep, that even if you tried you could never reach the end of the directory tree. So as you see, joke was about deep directories, that it took more mass than a black hole.
