How to Install Yarn on Ubuntu 16.04

/ Category: Tutorials / Comments: None

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on an Ubuntu 16.04 Cloud VPS, as well as go over some of the basics with using Yarn.

Yarn is a Javascript package manager, serving as an alternative to NPM. It is an open-source project and was built by a team at Facebook. There are many advantages when using Yarn, such as:

  • Offline Installation
  • Faster download, packages are installed in parallel
  • Support for multiple registries

As you can see, the interesting feature is the offline installation. Once you have installed a package, it will be cached and we can create another project from scratch without being connected to the internet, which in turn will save our bandwidth usage.
Usually, a project requires some dependencies and every time we install them to start a project, the “npm install” command would consume your bandwidth. When using Yarn, the download is done just once. Let’s begin installing Yarn.

How to Manage Processes Efficiently in Linux

/ Category: Tutorials / Comments: None

While using a GUI to manage our tasks has been the norm over the years, using the command line can give the impression that it would be more complicated. However, the contrary is true. Many feel that some tasks are easier and can be done more efficiently on a command line. You might be used to the ubiquitous Task Manager on Windows, where you just press “Ctrl+Alt+Delete” (or “Ctrl+Shift+Escape”), and you get a list of all processes neatly organized in tabs.

While it might not be as simple as a point-and-click system in Linux, you have an extremely powerful task manager called “htop” instead. Once you get past the small learning curve, you’ll feel much more at home with the command line tool, and it might even be faster compared to its GUI counterpart.
