pnpm is an up-and-coming package manager for Node.js that we're looking at closely because of its higher speed and greater efficiency compared to other package managers. Dependencies are saved in a single place on the disk and are linked into the respective node_modules directories. pnpm also supports incremental optimization on file level, provides a solid API foundation to allow extension/customization and supports store server mode, which speeds up dependency download even more. If your organization has a large number of projects with the same dependencies, you may want to take a closer look at pnpm.
