How to Uninstall a Yeoman Generator

I’m using a Mac and I play around with Yeoman quite a bit.

I’d like to delete a Yeoman generator and for some reason there’s not a quick and easy step by step out there so here’s what I found.

You’ll have to open up your terminal window and all thanks to this site https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17804593/how-to-remove-a-yeoman-generator

  1. Open up a command line
  2. Enter this command to get a list of your generators and their versions

    npm list -g –depth=0 | grep ‘generator’

  3. You can remove the generator using this command and remember to exclude the ‘@[version]’ that follows the generator name

npm uninstall -g [generator-name]
