Severity: 3-Major


Using Node.js package manager (NPM) to install a large Node.js package in the TMUI results in truncated contents in the workspace.


The workspace contents will be truncated. Some of the package contents will be missing, or boilerplate F5 elements (f5-nodejs, package.json, etc.) will not be shown.


Installing large Node.js packages using the TMUI.


None. Note: TMSH recognizes the entire file structure of node_modules (e.g., package.json and module folders of f5-nodejs and async), but TMUI does not.

Fix Information

All contents from the workspace filesystem are now shown and are editable from the TMUI.
