Accelerating Access to npm and Yarn in China by Changing the Source


By default, npm and Yarn use overseas source addresses, resulting in slow access in China.
You can check the current mirror source being used with the following command:

yarn config get registry


Utilize the cgr software to quickly switch between mirror sources for npm and Yarn.

Installing cgr

npm install -g cgr

Listing currently available mirror sources

cgr ls

Selecting a mirror source to switch to (e.g., Taobao)

cgr use taobao

Testing access speed

cgr test taobao
