pnpm unlink

Unlinks a system-wide package (inverse of pnpm link).

If called without arguments, all linked dependencies will be unlinked inside the current project.

This is similar to yarn unlink, except pnpm re-installs the dependency after removing the external link.


If you want to remove a link made with pnpm link --global <package>, you should use pnpm uninstall --global <package>. pnpm unlink only removes the links in your current directory.


--recursive, -r

Unlink in every package found in subdirectories or in every workspace package, when executed inside a workspace.

--filter <package_selector>
