#shortrant Everyone claims yarn is faster than npm. That has not been my experience.

    How so, cause it has to actually be seeing as npm downloads in sequence while yarn in parallel.

    I am using it with all my apps now, the reduced download time is only really a benefit when moving to a new machine, but the version locking has helped with some patch bugs.

    The downloading is not the bottleneck. It literally just spent 10 minutes "linking" whatever that entails. Somebody somewhere let a worst case exponential time algorithm in there, am I right? ^_^

    This was for adding a single package, with no dependencies of its own, by the way.
