Using both npm and yarn?

See original GitHub issue

Is there a reason this project is using both npm and yarn? I think one or the other could be used exclusively (along with its respective lockfile).

If the reason is ¯_(ツ)_/¯ I’d be happy to submit a PR consolidating to one or the other!

EDIT: Apologies for not explaining where I got the assumptions that both were being used.

  • npm: All commands in the README and some commands in package.json use npm
  • yarn: Three commands in package.json use yarn

Hi, thanks for submitting an issue. The project technically uses a Yarn lockfile and docker builds using Yarn so in that regard it uses Yarn for package management. I originally wrote the documentation using NPM so a developer not familiar with Yarn can still use the project until they are ready to look into Yarn.

Perhaps the decision can be made now which to go with. Yarn is ~25% faster and can be configured for offline mode but npm is the default and has caught up in most ways. NPM is probably the better choice for maximum compatibility. What do you say?

I updated it to only use npm since it’s the default. The recommends updating to use yarn or pnpm however
