CLI for listing an npm module's dependent projects and their download stats.
You might also be interested in module-dependents.
Install globally with npm
$ npm install --global dependents-cli
Once installed globally, there will be a
dependents command that can be run from the command line.
To see all the dependents for a module, specify the module name after the
dependents command like this:
$ dependents base
name and dependency version properties. The dependency version property key will be the specified module name with
-version after it. So
base-version for the command specified above.
Example output from running
$ dependents base:
--format option to format the results as a table (this is the default).
Run the following command to the dependents formatted as a table:
$ dependents base --format
You can also include the download counts when using formatting:
$ dependents base --downloads --format
If you need to use the results as a JSON object, use the
--format command with
json after it:
$ dependents base --format json
This can be output to a json file using the
$ dependents base --format json > base-dependents.json
Use this with the
--downloads option to be able to use the json data and do your own sorting and filtering if necessary.
$ dependents base --format json --downloads > base-dependents.json
To include the download counts of each of the dependents, use the
--downloads option. This will add a
downloads object to each dependent with the
last30 (last 30 days) download counts:
$ dependents base --downloads --format json
When using the
--downloads option, the list is sorted by the
downloads.last30 property so the most used dependents will be found at the top.
