Yarn is a popular package manager among the developer community. There are many tools, and the library uses yarn and npm package manager.

PNPM is a new package manager for nodejs. Recently, I created a new nextjs application based on pnpm. On the GitHub page deploy time, I need yarn.lock file. But the yarn.lock file creates by yarn install command. That is not true, but you can also create a yarn.lock file with the following command.

yarn generate-lock-entry >> yarn.lock


The yarn generate-lock-entry command generates a lock file given the current package.json manifest file.
