Installing electron and chromedriver with yarn in China is often a problem that cannot be connected. At this time, we may prefer to use a mirror repository in China to speed up the process, rather than setting up a proxy. And when installing electron, it is useless to set yarn’s global proxy alone. So how do you set up proxies based on different packages? You can follow the sample commands provided in the list below to set it up.
yarn global settings
Set the repository address used by yarn to install general packages.
yarn config set registry https://r.npm.taobao.org 注册模块镜像 yarn config set disturl https://npm.taobao.org/dist # node-gyp 编译依赖的 node 源码镜像
This is the result of running the above command, and you can clearly see if the setup was successful.
yarn install specific package settings
Set the address of the repository used by yarn to install packages such as electron and chromedriver. You can choose one or two commands to set them up as needed, it is not necessary to add them all.
yarn config set sass_binary_site https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/node-sass # node-sass 二进制包镜像 yarn config set electron_mirror https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/electron/ # electron 二进制包镜像 yarn config set puppeteer_download_host https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors # puppeteer 二进制包镜像 yarn config set chromedriver_cdnurl https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/chromedriver # chromedriver 二进制包镜像 yarn config set operadriver_cdnurl https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/operadriver # operadriver 二进制包镜像 yarn config set phantomjs_cdnurl https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/phantomjs # phantomjs 二进制包镜像 yarn config set selenium_cdnurl https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/selenium # selenium 二进制包镜像 yarn config set node_inspector_cdnurl https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/node-inspector # node-inspector 二进制包镜像
Similar to the above, you can clearly see if the setup was successful after running the command.
