Transferring sage theme from local development environment to a live server

Hello. Can someone tell me what important files & folder do I need to compress to transfer it to a live server if I am working on my local system and transferring it to a production/live server? Because I can see that there is lots of files & folders in the sage theme (i.e, node_modules, ~, etc). I am not talking about using the yarn run build:production command BTW. Thank you for the help in advance. Thanks!

For the bare minimum required files:

Thank you so much for your help. Can you share that bash script? The yarn prep one?

Oh thank you so much. That really helped best of luck :slight_smile:
