Yarn tips and tricks

Chose Yarn version

Let’s find out your current Yarn version with yarn --version. If your local Yarn version is 1.22 and above go ahead and type-in:

yarn set version berry

This should fetch Yarn 2 and show you an output as follows:

Resolving berry to a url...
Downloading https://github.com/yarnpkg/berry/raw/master/packages/berry-cli/bin/berry.js...
Saving it into /Volumes/Work/web/.yarn/releases/yarn-berry.cjs...
Updating /Volumes/Work/web/.yarnrc.yml...

You can downgrade back with follow:

yarn set version 1.22.5

Upgrade all npm packages interactively

This is similar to npm-check interactive update mode. It provides an easy way to update outdated packages

yarn upgrade-interactive --latest 

Will looks like follow:

[1/? Choose which packages to update. (Press <space> to select, <a> to toggle all, <i> to inverse selection)

❯◯ autoprefixer      6.7.7  ❯  7.0.0          https://github.com/postcss/autoprefixer#readme
 ◯ webpack           2.4.1  ❯  2.5.1          https://github.com/webpack/webpack

 ◯ bull              2.2.6  ❯  3.0.0-alpha.3  https://github.com/OptimalBits/bull#readme
 ◯ fs-extra          3.0.0  ❯  3.0.1          https://github.com/jprichardson/node-fs-extra
 ◯ socket.io         1.7.3  ❯  1.7.4          https://github.com/socketio/socket.io#readme
 ◯ socket.io-client  1.7.3  ❯  1.7.4          https://github.com/Automattic/socket.io-client#readme

Offline package mirrors

Yarn can maintain offline copies of your packages for more repeatable and reliable build. Create .yarnrc file with follow content:

yarn-offline-mirror "./.npm"
yarn-offline-mirror-pruning true
--install.prefer-offline true
--install.dev true

All npm packages will be saved to .npm folder locally.

Fetch in pure Node.js

There are a lot of popular Node.js modules for requestiong data with HTTP or HTTPS (e.g. axios, got, node-fetch), but you don't need them! You can easily made HTTP/HTTPS requests in Node.js with http.get or https.get:

import https from "https";

module.exports = (params, postData) => new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    const req = https.request(params, (res) => {

        // reject on bad status
        if (res.statusCode < 200 || res.statusCode >= 300) {
            return reject(new Error('statusCode=' + res.statusCode));

        // read data
        let body = [];
        res.on('data', chunk => {

        res.on('end', () => {
            try {
                body = Buffer.concat(body).toString();
            } catch (e) {

            resolve(body); // submit data

    req.on('error', (err) => {

    if (postData) {

    req.end(); // close request

Then just call this:

import fetch from './fetch'

(async () => {
  const content = await fetch('https://example.com');

Happy nodescripting!
