starting MEAN stack app #2

dumb question: I've already installed all the dependencies for a previous project (angular, express, mongodb, node, etc.). I know the package.json needs to be populated so the project can be shared....but what happens under the hood? In my head I'm envisioning all these project folders with redundancy, but I'm sure I'm incorrect....right??
