How To Install Yarn on openSUSE

Install Yarn on openSUSE

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on openSUSE. Yarn is a popular and efficient package manager for JavaScript and Node.js, offering a fast, reliable, and secure way to manage dependencies for your projects. As a developer, you may find that Yarn provides a more streamlined and stable experience compared to other package managers.

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 package manager on openSUSE.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: openSUSE (Leap or Tumbleweed)
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. openSUSE provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • You’ll need an active internet connection to download Inkscape and its dependencies.
  • You’ll need administrative (root) access or a user account with sudo privileges.

Install Yarn on openSUSE

Step 1. Update Your System.

It’s also essential to ensure that your system is up-to-date. To update your openSUSE system, open a terminal and run the following command:

sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper update

Step 2. Installing Yarn on openSUSE.

 To install Yarn on openSUSE, we first need to add the official Yarn repository to the system’s package manager. This ensures that we can access and install the latest version of Yarn. To add the repository, open a terminal and execute the following command:

sudo zypper ar -f Yarn

To verify the integrity and authenticity of the packages we will be installing from the Yarn repository, we need to import the Yarn GPG key. This step is crucial to prevent potential security risks and ensure that the packages have not been tampered with. To import the GPG key, run the following commands:

sudo rpm --import pubkey.gpg

Now that we have added the Yarn repository and imported its GPG key, we are ready to install Yarn on our openSUSE system. First, let’s refresh zypper’s repository metadata to ensure that it is aware of the newly added Yarn repository:

sudo zypper refresh

Once the repository metadata has been refreshed, we can proceed with installing Yarn using the following command:

sudo zypper install yarn

After the installation process is complete, it’s a good idea to verify that Yarn was installed correctly and is functioning as expected. To check the installed version of Yarn, simply run:

yarn --version

As with any software, it’s important to keep Yarn up to date to benefit from the latest features, performance improvements, and security fixes. To update Yarn to the latest version available in the repository, use the following command:

sudo zypper up yarn

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Yarn. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the Yarn package manager on your openSUSE system. For additional or useful information, we recommend you check the official Yarn website.
