This plugin adds support for installing packages through a node_modules folder.


This plugin is included by default in Yarn 2, but is still considered experimental. For this reason, you must enable it manually by adding the following to your .yarnrc.yml file:

nodeLinker: node-modules

Word of caution

While they are supported by virtually every tool, installs using the node_modules strategy have various fundamental issues that the default Plug'n'Play installations don't suffer from (for more details, check out our documentation). Carefully consider the pros and cons before enabling this plugin.
