Project description

Easy way to use yarnpkg with your Django project.

This is a fork of django-bower <> by Vladimir Iakovlev.

Read full documentation on read-the-docs.


Install django-yarnpkg package:

pip install django-yarnpkg

Add django-bower to INSTALLED_APPS in your settings:


Add staticfinder to STATICFILES_FINDERS:


Specify path to components root (you need to use an absolute path):

NODE_MODULES_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'node_modules')

If you need, you can manually set the path to yarnpkg:

YARN_PATH = '/usr/bin/yarnpkg'

You can see an example settings file in example project.


Specify YARN_INSTALLED_APPS in settings, like:


Download yarn packages with the management command:

./ yarn install

Add scripts in the template, like:

{% load static %}
<script type="text/javascript" src='{% static 'jquery/dist/jquery.js' %}'></script>

In production you need to call yarnpkg install before collectstatic:

./ yarn install
./ collectstatic

If you need to pass arguments to yarnpkg, like –flat, use:

./ yarn install -- --flat

You can call yarnpkg commands like info and update with:

./ yarn info backbone
./ yarn update

Python 3 support

django-yarnpkg supports python 3.3+
