How To Install Yarn on Manjaro

Install Yarn on Manjaro

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on Manjaro. Yarn is a fast, reliable, and secure package manager for JavaScript. It allows developers to manage project dependencies efficiently, ensuring the reliability and performance of web applications. Yarn was developed by Facebook and is known for its speed, reliability, and security.

Some key features of Yarn:

  • Speed – Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to download the same package again. This makes installs much faster.
  • Security – Yarn uses checksums to verify the integrity of every installed package before its code is executed. This prevents tampering or corruption.
  • Reliability – Yarn uses lockfiles and a deterministic algorithm to ensure that dependencies on a machine are consistent across installations.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Yarn on a Manjaro Linux.


  • A server or desktop running one of the following operating systems: Manjaro, and other Arch Linux-based distributions.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • Ensure that your Manjaro system is connected to the internet. This is crucial as it allows you to download the required packages and the Yarn installation.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Yarn on Manjaro

Step 1. Before installing any new software, it’s prudent to ensure your system is up to date. Use the following command to update your package repositories and installed packages:

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S base-devel

Step 2. Installing Yarn on Manjaro.

  • Method 1: Installing Yarn via Pacman.

Execute the following command in the terminal to install Yarn using the Pacman package manager:

sudo pacman -S yarn

 Verify that Yarn has been installed correctly by running the following command:

yarn --version

This command should display the version of Yarn installed on the system, confirming the successful installation.

  • Method 2: Installing Yarn via NPM.

First, install Node.js and NPM by running the following command:

sudo pacman -S nodejs npm

Verify that Node.js and NPM have been installed correctly by running the following commands:

node --version
npm --version

These commands should display the version numbers of Node.js and NPM installed on your system.

Now execute the command to install Yarn via NPM:

npm install -g yarn

Verify that Yarn has been installed correctly by running the following command:

yarn --version
