does this actually remove it from the project wide search result ("find in files") ?
It doesn't in ST3 :(

Thank you. The only problem of this method is that it also removes these folders from the sidebar and I regularly check node modules source code when I don't find what I need in the documentation. I access them through the sidebar usually :P

I'm in line with @AoDev

It is a shame loosing the node_modules folders in the sidebar in the sake of search speed.

I wonder how vim and other text editors handle this

So

}

(with the slash in the end) is the way to go? Works for me on ST3.

Update sometimes I want to search node_modules sometimes I don't.
Just update the Where path:
