Ask anything to Yarn Team


Yarn is great and speeds up npm install times drastically! However, within the first few hours of the official release yarn issues came pouring in to the tune of >380 today. What is the yarn team doing to address those issues quickly? Is there any timeline for releases?

Also, has there been any discussion around adding yarn's caching functionality or parallel install into npm core? What do you see as the future of yarn and npm? Thank you!

  1. We hope the community will help out with the bug fixes. The code is quite easy to follow and improve.

  2. We target to make a branch cut / release every 2 weeks

  3. If Yarn can inspire npm CLI then it is a win for the community.
