A story of how we migrated to pnpm

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • cache

    Cache dependencies and build outputs in GitHub Actions

    However the cache cannot always be used. As soon as the lock file changes, typically when adding dependencies, the cache isn't reused because the cache's hash is usually computed based on the lock file. We would then get:

  • rocket

    The modern web setup for static sites with a sprinkle of JavaScript (by modernweb-dev)

    Another kind of problem we ran into is some dependencies having undeclared dependencies. When using yarn it was not a problem because those undeclared dependencies are sometimes very used. For example, after the migration we realized mdjs-core had not declared its dependency on slash.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • eleventy 🕚⚡️

    A simpler static site generator. An alternative to Jekyll. Transforms a directory of templates (of varying types) into HTML.

    We have been using Yarn 2 for quite some time, having originally switched to it for its native workspace support which is great for monorepos as we happen to have one. Because we use a lot of different dev tools (in no particular order - Vite, Vitepress, Astro, esbuild, Webpack, Eleventy, Firebase tools, Tailwind...) and many more actual dependencies. It's easy to understand how many dependencies we're bound to have when you see all the frameworks we support, whether on WebComponents.dev or on Backlight.

  • webpack

    A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • esbuild

    An extremely fast JavaScript and CSS bundler and minifier
