In simple terms as I understand it, the node_modules is the dependency that provides additional functionality to React so that you don’t have to write the code from scratch.
From there, you can add and remove as needed. I’ll write articles about each one and their functionalities as I keep learning more about React.
There are 797 subfolders under node_modules with React version 18.1.0 using npm view react version in terminal to check.
