Yarn, the new market player
Key differences between npm and Yarn
Yarn doesn't work this way. This new manager uses certain blocking files that work on the dependencies installed in certain code versions to ensure that node_modules has the same file structure irrespective of the project and the developers that have accessed the programming base.

In any case, npm also includes the command npm shrinkwrap to block certain versions of different packages and their descendants within the hierarchical directory node_modules. The problem arises when there are changes to packages that are no longer inside what npm calls "semantic versioning" (semver).
