code, yarn, npm •19th June 2018
All of us needed to link our local package to another to test something out or for quicker development. But more or less everytime you got some weird error..
Yalc does a cool thing instead of using symbolic links, it just mimics what an actual publish would do. After changes are done it packs all the files that npm would publish and instead of going public, it puts them on a local registry (a folder) and points the main package to it.
cd myModule yalc add cd .. cd myProject yalc add myModule # Updates package.json cd .. cd myModule # ... # Some coding # ... yalc push # new version is pushed to all dependent projects
