pnpm CLI

Diferencias con npm

A diferencia de npm, pnpm valida todas las opciones. Por ejemplo, pnpm install --target_arch x64 fallar谩 ya que --target_arch no es una opci贸n v谩lida para pnpm install.

However, some dependencies may use the npm_config_ environment variable, which is populated from the CLI options. In this case, you have the following options:

  1. explicitly set the env variable: npm_config_target_arch=x64 pnpm install
  2. force the unknown option with --config.: pnpm install --config.target_arch=x64


-C <path>, --dir <path>

Run as if pnpm was started in <path> instead of the current working directory.

-w, --workspace-root

Run as if pnpm was started in the root of the workspace instead of the current working directory.


For more information, see the documentation for individual CLI commands. Here is a list of handy npm equivalents to get you started:

npm installpnpm install
npm i <pkg>[pnpm add <pkg>]
npm run <cmd>[pnpm <cmd>]

When an unknown command is used, pnpm will search for a script with the given name, so pnpm run lint is the same as pnpm lint. If there is no script with the specified name, then pnpm will execute the command as a shell script, so you can do things like pnpm eslint (see pnpm exec).

Environment variables

Some environment variables that are not pnpm related might change the behaviour of pnpm:

These environment variables may influence what directories pnpm will use for storing global information:


You can search the docs to find the settings that leverage these environment variables.
