403 Forbidden in development with Gatsby (yarn)

I'm using Gatsby version ^3.14.5, react ^17.0.2, and node 14.x.x
Deploying to AWS S3

Intended behavior:
That gsap@npm:gsap/shockingly is installed correctly locally, in development (via gh actions), in production (via gh actions).

Actual behavior:
I'm getting a 403 (forbidden) when I install dependencies in development (and presumably production). The token is absolutely exists in my .npmrc. What could possibly be the issue? Is this frequent with other users?

I am using yarn because it works better for this particular project. I tried switching to NPM to fix this specific issue but it caused a myriad of other problems. Quickly willing to provide any other necessary context that may help me resolve this issue as I've spent a lot of time trying different things to get it to work.

Sorry to hear about the trouble, @danny_miniaturepony. Yeah, Yarn has some known bugs that make it pretty annoying to deal with on private repos but from what I understand, these steps might help: 


$ npm config set @gsap:registry https://npm.greensock.com/
$ npm config set //npm.greensock.com/:_authToken xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx
$ yarn add @gsap/shockingly gsap@npm:@gsap/shockingly

(don't forget to put your token in there on the 2nd line)


Some people have reported that adding @latest to the end of the last line caused it to work: 

yarn add @gsap/shockingly gsap@npm:@gsap/shockingly@latest


Actually, this answer/thread might be the most helpful:
