How Do I Uninstall Yarn


How can I uninstall yarn? I've used it for a react-native project and now whenever I move the code out of index.ios.js or it throws an error so I'd like to just use npm but whenever I initialize a react-native project it defaults to yarn. I tried npm uninstall yarn but that didn't work. Thanks.

Depends on how you installed it:

brew: brew uninstall yarn

tarball: rm -rf "$HOME/.yarn"

npm: npm uninstall -g yarn

ubuntu: sudo apt-get remove yarn && sudo apt-get purge yarn

centos: yum remove yarn

windows: choco uninstall yarn

Try this, it works well on macOS:

$ brew uninstall --force yarn
$ npm uninstall -g yarn
$ yarn -v

v0.24.5 (or your current version)

$ which yarn


$ rm -rf /usr/local/bin/yarn
$ rm -rf /usr/local/bin/yarnpkg
$ which yarn

yarn not found

$ brew install yarn 
$ brew link yarn
$ yarn -v

v1.17.3 (latest version)
