Revert from pnpm to npm


I just realized I won’t be able to use pnpm in a project, due to compatibility issues with other tools. Is there a way to cleanly switch back to npm, which is my default package manager?
What would be your approach? I’m trying to avoid reverting back to a previous push.

Thank you!


This should be pretty easy:

  • Delete node_modules
  • Delete pnpm_lock.yaml (this will be replaced by package-lock.json)
  • Replace all pnpm calls to npm in package.json

Now you can run npm install.
Tadaa, welcome back to npm.
