Never have to switch between yarn, npm, and pnpm commands ever again.
narn is a CLI that detects whether your current npm package is using npm, yarn, or pnpm. It then spawns the correct one with the correct arguments. The arguments to narn itself are exactly the same as if you're using yarn. The command will be converted to npm or pnpm's syntax if the current package is managed by npm / pnpm.
npm i -g narn yarn global add narn pnpm i -g narn
If you run
narn upgrade-interactive on a project managed by npm, you'll need to globally install
If you run
narn publish on a project managed by npm, you'll need to globally install
# To install from package.json narn # or narn install # To add new package narn add react # To remove a package narn remove react # Add a dev dependency narn add --dev webpack narn add -D webpack # Run a script from the package.json narn test narn build # Publish with interactive UI narn publish # Upgrade dependencies with interactive ui narn upgrade-interactive narn upgrade-interactive --latest # Install global library. All global libs are installed with yarn (since the most important thing is just that you consistently use the same package manager for global libs) narn global add @vue/cli # yarn create single-spa is similar to npm init single-spa narn create single-spa # View the installed versions of narn and yarn/npm narn -v narn --version # global commands are supported too narnx global add http-server narnx global remove http-server # Run npx / pnpx narnx create-single-spa
For more usage, see the Yarn CLI docs -
narn's cli is meant to behave exactly the same.
Default Package Manager
To set the default package manager that's used in projects that don't have a yarn.lock, pnpm-lock.yaml, or package-lock.json, set the
NARN_DEFAULT_PM environment variable. You can also add this to your bashrc (or equivalent) to ensure the variable is always there.
export NARN_DEFAULT_PM=pnpm narn
By default, narn uses
np on npm and pnpm projects. However,
np doesn't support pnpm. Because of that, it might be desireable to turn off
np as the handler for
npm publish. To disable
np, set the following environment variable:
export NARN_PUBLISH=passthrough narn publish
