    dep-validate

    dep-validate is a tool used to verify the ranges on your npm dependencies. It can be used from the command line, from JavaScript, or from Gulp. It's available on npm, so just install it via:

    # for gulp/node usage
    $ npm install --save-dev dep-validate
    
    # for command line usage
    $ npm install -g dep-validate
    

    Command Line Usage

    Super easy, it's just the same interface as the JavaScript library (read up).

    $ dep-validate --dependencies '~' --devDependencies '^' --exclude pkg1 --exclude pkg2 --hardcoded=allow --only production --only development --packageFile ./package.json

    The exit code will be a 1 in case of error, with a chart displaying errors. It'll be 0 on success with no output.

    Library Usages

    You can use the JavaScript library either directly in Node.js or via Gulp:

    JavaScript Interface

    All options are shown below and are the defaults (so they're used if not provided). The only exception is file, which will resolve the current package.json (by reading upwards in directory).

    var dv = require('dep-validate');
     
    // available options
    var opts = {
      dependencies: '~',                      // the range to enforce on all "dependencies"
      devDependencies: '^',                   // the range to enforce on all "devDependencies"
      exluded: [ 'my-package' ],              // packages to exclude from validation
      hardcoded: 'allow|force',               // allow or force hardcoded versions
      packageFile: './package.json',          // the package.json file to read and validate
      only: [ 'production', 'development' ]   // only check prod/dev dependencies
    }
     
    // `validate()` results a results object
    var results = dv.validate(opts);
     
    // which can be printed using `log()`
    if (dv.hasErrors(results)) {
      dv.log(results);
    }
     
    // or use `pipe()` for a callback-style interface (it's still synchronous)
    dv.pipe(opts, function (err) {
      // err contains a `meta` field containing information about failures
      // you can either inspect this manually, or log the entire error using `log(err)`
    })
    Gulp
    var dv = require('dep-validate');
    var gulp = require('gulp');
     
    gulp.task('deps:validate', function () {
        gulp.src('./package.json', { read: false })
            .pipe(dv.gulp());
    })

    In addition to the options accepted by the JavaScript interface, .gulp() can also accept a failOnError option which will cause your Gulp task to cause an error if your dependencies do not satisfy your rules.
