FYI, I’m only starting out too, this post just delivers the topic “Installing vue-cli with Yarn”, and it’s not working out of the box as of 2016-11-02. See issue. It will be fixed very soon.
No comparisons, no introductions, and other bullshit involved.
The main reason is that vue-cli makes it easier to just fork one of the official templates and create your own tailored template. […]
The other factor is branding. vue init just feels better than yo vue 😉
So for the sake of feeling better… I guess?
Step 1: Install yarn
Yarn in a few words:
Fucking faster than npm! Ah! And from Facebook!
npm install -g yarn
Step 2: Install vue-cli
Yarn uses the command add to install. After each install, remove, operation… yarn prints out how much time it used. (Just to tell you how awesome it is!?)
yarn global add vue-cli
FIXED in 2.4.1 >> See Pull Request
vue-init(1) does not exist, try --help
If you happen to see this after you install vue-cli with yarn, the fastest/easiest way to use this thingy is to install it with npm (lol~ no idea why i wrote this post now).
npm install -g vue-cli
If you still want to use yarn, the problem can be fixed by updating the version and bin in package.json for vue-cli. Usually located in /home/.yarn-config/global/node_modules/vue-cli and then run
yarn global add file:/path/to/vue-cli
Step 3: Create project with vue-cli
Last but not least, create a project and all is well~
vue init webpack my-project
