pnpm is a fast and disk space efficient package manager, serving as an alternative to npm and yarn.

  • Ensure you have installed Node.js.
  • Open a command-line terminal (e.g. Terminal, Command Prompt).
  • Enter npm install -g pnpm to globally install the package.
  • You can install dependencies with pnpm using pnpm i.

You can reference package.json files for available scripts, i.e.

"scripts": {
  "start": "vite",
  "watch": "vite build --watch",
  "build": "tsc && vite build",
  "preview": "vite preview",
  "format": "prettier --write \"./src/**/*.{ts,tsx,css}\""

Using the example above pnpm build will run the build script for the given package.
