How to replace node modules folder on a different computer?


I could not use git push for my ionic app due to the node modules folder being too long.

I used .gitignore to ignore the node_modules, platforms and the plugins folder as a solution.

My comp broke and now I have a loaner comp that I’d like to continue developing on.

When I git pull from my this new computer, I know how to add back the platforms and plugins with command line tools, but I’m at a loss on how to add the node modules folder.

I have the saved app in a zip, but I can’t even unzip this because the node modules folder is too long when unzipping…

How do I get back the node modules folder into this cloned app? (Side question, can I just copy the platforms and plugins folder from my zip into this cloned folder, or do I need to use command line tools?)
