Yarn is a JavaScript package manager compatible with npm that helps you automate the process of installing, updating, configuring, and removing npm packages. It caches every download package and speeds up the installation process by parallelizing operations.

In this tutorial, we will explain how to install Yarn on Ubuntu 20.04. We will also go through the basic Yarn commands and options.

Installing Yarn on Ubuntu

Installing Yarn on Ubuntu is fairly straightforward. We’ll enable the official Yarn repository, import the repository GPG key, and install the package. The repository is consistently maintained and provides the most up-to-date version.

Import the repository’s GPG key and add the Yarn APT repository to your system by running the following commands:

curl -sS https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list

Once the repository is enabled, update the package list, and install Yarn.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install yarn

The command above will also install Node.js . If you installed Node trough nvm, skip the Node.js installation with:

sudo apt install --no-install-recommends yarn

Once completed, verify the installation by printing the Yarn version:

yarn --version

The output will look something like this:


#ubuntu 20.04 #ubuntu #yarn #ubuntu
