Discussion on: Why I Use Yarn, Not npm

Maybe you'd like to try pnpm, then. It's big advantage is that it only ever keeps one copy of each package in your computer. So if you're using dependencies that you already use in other projects, you don't need to download them again.

Good point. Worth trying.

I used verdaccio for awhile. It proxies npm registry with a cache.. I was able to run npx create-react-app without an internet connection. I never figured out how to avoid writing localhost urls in my lockfile though.

maybe it could be in the docs?
