followup to last query, since i have never *knowingly* done anything
with nodejs, i'm wondering how safe i am to try to wipe every trace of
it from my own fedora 27 system, then re-install.
first, it *appears* that from a package perspective, no other
*packages* appear to depend on nodejs other than the npm management
$ rpm -q --whatrequires nodejs
$ rpm -q --whatrequires npm
no package requires npm
which suggests i can remove those two.
as for what i just installed with "npm", i tried both a local and a
global ("-g") install with npm, and the end result appeared to be
simply dumping content into a "node_modules/" directory, either in my
current directory or under /usr/lib. and there are also new
directories in my home directory, .npm/ and .node-gyp. am i safe to
just remove all of the above to pretend none of this ever happened?
