The open source tool is a replacement for npm.

Many Web developers use the npm package manager to help them keep track of their JavaScript libraries and components, but now they have a new option. Facebook has release Yarn, an open source JavaScript package manager that offers better performance and scalability. "With Yarn, engineers still have access to the npm registry, but can install packages more quickly and manage dependencies consistently across machines or in secure offline environments," Facebook explained. "Yarn enables engineers to move faster and with confidence when using shared code so they can focus on what matters — building new products and features."

The social network says that it created Yarn in order to better support its continuous integration workflow and other DevOps practices. Developers from Google, Exponent and Tilde also contributed to the project.
