auto generate dependencies

autod

Auto generate dependencies and devDependencies by parse the project file. autod will parse all the js files in path, and get the latest dependencies version from registry.npm.taobao.org or other registries by -r.

$ npm install -g autod
$ bin/autod -h
 
 Usage: autod [options]
 
  Options:
 
    -h, --help                                           output usage information
    -V, --version                                        output the version number
    -p, --path [root path]                               the root path to be parse
    -t, --test <test/benchmark/example directory paths>  modules in these paths will be tread as devDependencies
    -e, --exclude <exclude directory path>               exclude parse directory, split by `,`
    -r, --registry <remote registry>                     get latest version from which registry
    -f, --prefix [version prefix]                        version prefix, can be `~` or `^`
    -F, --devprefix [dev dependencies version prefix]    develop dependencies version prefix, can be `~` or `^`
    -w, --write                                          write dependencies into package.json
    -i, --ignore                                         ignore errors, display the dependencies or write the dependencies.
    -m, --map                                            display all the dependencies require by which file
    -d, --dep <dependently modules>                      modules that not require in source file, but you need them as dependencies
    -D, --devdep <dev dependently modules>               modules that not require in source file, but you need them in as devDependencies
    -k, --keep <dependently modules>                     modules that you want to keep version in package.json file
    -s, --semver <dependencies@version>                  auto update these modules within the specified semver
  • Autod will parse all the js files in path, and you can exclude folder by -e, --exclude.
  • All the modules in test folder (can be alter by -t, --text) will parsed as devDependencies.
  • If you set -w, --write, autod will write the dependencies into package.json file. dependencies will replace dependencies in package.json, and devDependencies will merge with devDependencies in package.json, then write into package file.
  • -f, --prefix will add prefix to each dependencies' version.
  • -F, --devprefix will add prefix to each dev dependencies' version.
  • -i, --ignore will display or wrtie the dependencies even some error happened.
  • -d --dep will add modules to dependencies even not require by any file.
  • -D --devdep will add modules to devDependencies even not require by any file.
  • -k --keep will keep the modules' version in package.json not change by autod.
  • -s, --semver will update these modules within the specified semver

a simple example of autod:

autod -w --prefix="~" -d connect -D mocha,should -k express -s connect@2

add a command in your Makefile

autod:
    @./node_modules/.bin/autod -w
    @npm install
 

then run make autod, it will find all the dependencies and devDependencies in your project, add / remove dependencies, and bump the versions.
