Fast, disk space efficient package manager:
node_modulesare linked from a single content-addressable storage.
To quote the Rush team:
Microsoft uses pnpm in Rush repos with hundreds of projects and hundreds of PRs per day, and weve found it to be very fast and reliable.

pnpm uses a content-addressable filesystem to store all files from all module directories on a disk. When using npm, if you have 100 projects using lodash, you will have 100 copies of lodash on disk. With pnpm, lodash will be stored in a content-addressable storage, so:
pnpm updatewill only add 1 new file to the storage.
As a result, you save gigabytes of space on your disk and you have a lot faster installations!

node_modules structure that pnpm creates and
why it works fine with the Node.js ecosystem, read this small article: Flat node_modules is not the only way.
