‘node’ is not recognized – Fixed Yarn on Windows

yarn is a package manager developed by Facebook ( equal to npm ), but is not made available to the user by default when installing Node.js. Yarn was developed in 2016 from the problem that in the past npm e.g. was not very performant and features such as a lock file were not available.

What is a package?

Packages are JavaScript modules that are supposed to represent reusable code. All currently available packages can be found here: https://www.npmjs.com/. However, each package can depend on other packages. This is in the package.json defined in the area „ dependencies “ or „ devDependencies “.

What is npm?

npm ( „ Node package manager “, first published in 2010 ) is supplied by default with every installation of Node.js and is used to download or manage packages.
