How to install Yarn on CentOS 9 Stream?

Hello, friends. In this short and brief post, you will learn how to install Yarn on CentOS 9 Stream.

In a nutshell, Yarn is a package manager for JavaScript that is fully compatible with NPM. To some extent, Yarn improves on many aspects of the standard NPM client. That is, although the functionality is similar, Yarn adds certain enhancements that make the process easier.

Some advantages of Yarn are that it is fast, very reliable and introduces new concepts to make the package management process easy to do.

The Yarn installation process is simple thanks to the good support it provides for Linux. As you can guess, CentOS 9 Stream is no exception.

First we have to install NodeJS because it is a Yarn dependency. To achieve this, we just need to use the version included in the official repositories of the distribution:

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install nodejs

Then, you will be able to see the version you have installed, running this command

node --version



Thereafter, we have to install the curl package

sudo dnf install curl

The curl package will be used to add the Yarn repository to the system.

curl --silent --location | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/yarn.repo
sudo rpm --import

Now that the repository has been successfully added, we can install Yarn with this command

sudo dnf install yarn
