Installing Yarn on WSL

bonstine profile image Bonnie Simon ・1 min read

So I had my harddisk formatted and had to redo all my WSL dev environment setup.
I went to the yarn website to install yarn, and was left confused af. I didn't know which way to install yarn, there were so many different ways. Finally I found how to, and want to save it here as a blog post so that I won't have to go through it again.

So here's the magical command :

curl -o- -L https://yarnpkg.com/install.sh | bash
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Yep that's it. Copy it to your WSL terminal (fyi I had Ubuntu 20.04 installed) and yarn will be installed.

Now just restart the wsl terminal and type

yarn --version
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If yarn installed successfully, then the current installed yarn version number is returned.

Have a good day!

I had the same issue until I closed the terminal I was working in and reopened it.
