Nodejs junk files

When integrating nodejs/node_modules in an image also “junk files” are added. These files (license, readme, etc.) use a lot of space which is valuable for embedded systems. Does anybody know of a method to remove these files from the final image?

You could try using some thing like modclean

Modify the package's Makefile to not copy them as often the Make file does a cp some/path/* some/staging/path/

modclean won't help, as they will still be in the ROM, still consuming space, for most any OpenWrt install.
