When you delete a file or directory and if it does not exist then it'll throw an error in pretty much all the shells like Bash or Zsh.
We need to conditionally check them before performing the delete operation.
Here is how to do it.
# For file if [ -f "package-lock.json" ]; then rm package-lock.json fi
# For directory if [ -d "node_modules" ]; then rm -r node_modules fi
Happy conditional deletes!
