Verdaccio vs Yarn: What are the differences?

Developers describe Verdaccio as "A lightweight private npm proxy registry". A simple, zero-config-required local private npm registry. Comes out of the box with its own tiny database, and the ability to proxy other registries (eg. npmjs.org), caching the downloaded modules along the way. On the other hand, Yarn is detailed as "A new package manager for JavaScript". Yarn caches every package it downloads so it never needs to again. It also parallelizes operations to maximize resource utilization so install times are faster than ever.

Verdaccio and Yarn can be primarily classified as "Front End Package Manager" tools.

Verdaccio and Yarn are both open source tools. It seems that Yarn with 36.2K GitHub stars and 2.22K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Verdaccio with 7.19K GitHub stars and 656 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Verdaccio and Yarn?
    npm
    npm is the command-line interface to the npm ecosystem. It is battle-tested, surprisingly flexible, and used by hundreds of thousands of JavaScript developers every day.
    Bower
    Bower is a package manager for the web. It offers a generic, unopinionated solution to the problem of front-end package management, while exposing the package dependency model via an API that can be consumed by a more opinionated build stack. There are no system wide dependencies, no dependencies are shared between different apps, and the dependency tree is flat.
    RequireJS
    RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.
    Browserify
    Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies.
    Component
    Component's philosophy is the UNIX philosophy of the web - to create a platform for small, reusable components that consist of JS, CSS, HTML, images, fonts, etc. With its well-defined specs, using Component means not worrying about most frontend problems such as package management, publishing components to a registry, or creating a custom build process for every single app.

    Yarn is a wonderful alternative to the built-in npm command-line interface. Dependency installation is crazy fast, because it caches every package and performs operations in parallel.

    I prefer yarn instead of npm.

    Both npm and yarn work great.

    I don’t see any overwhelming reason to choose one over another.

    I just like yarn, that’s it.

    We use it in every JS project. Blazing fast package manager for node.js. Easy to use in Docker containers

    Used in Coolfront Mobile and "Charlie" (flat rate search engine) as packaging mechanism.

    We tend to stick to npm, yarn is only a fancy alternative, not 10x better.
