@iRet I suspect the reason for that is that this yarn is in direct conflict with apache hadoop's yarn.

@jankoppe thank you!

@iRet Oh, I did not see that. I've added this, so it should work now, thank you!

I was wondering whether you can create both yarn and yarnpkg symlinks please.
Some software new Rails release in particular uses yarnpkg instead of yarn.
And it seems like official deb packages creates both symlinks as well.

@noderat Oh, seems that you're right. By the time I packaged 0.18.0 it was only flagged as latest release. I'm sorry.

Given the frequency of yarn releases, I will probably let this one be as it is and watch out for this in future releases. I am already thinking about creating a yarn-git package which will build the latest development version from scratch, but not sure when I will find time to do this.

It looks like 0.18 is actually a pre-release version. Can we either keep this to full releases and/or split into two PKGBUILDs with one for stable and another for pre-release builds?

This is/was a known upstream bug, see issue:

A fix has already been supplied here:

There has been no new release yet which contains this fix, so sadly you will either have to a) wait for a new relase and in the meantime use npm to install packages globally, or b) install yarn from the latest development branch in git and take your chances with bugs.

I can't globally install packages with yarn.

Either I precede the command with 'sudo' in which the package is installed in the /root directory and then symlinked to /usr/bin which means that I can't execute it without preceding the command with 'sudo'.

Or if I try installing globally without sudo, it won't be able to successfully symlink the package to the /usr/bin directory due to permissions.

Please do not flag for 0.15.1. This was a stub release, only intended to bump the npm version. It did not change anything for the code, thereforce 0.15.0 is essentially equal to 0.15.1. However, upstream did not release a dist version for 0.15.1, which does make sense. As I'm using the dist version in this PKGBUILD, i cannot just "upgrade" to 0.15.1.

This must have been a temporary error on GitHubs side, or problems with your internet connection. The download works just fine here.
