Fast checking of top level NPM and Bower dependencies based on version numbers.
See grunt-deps-ok for integrating this task into grunt pipeline.

Checks both dependencies listed in your package.json and bower.json
If deps-ok finds a problem, then run
npm install or

npm install deps-ok --savevar depsOk = ;var ok = ;

--allow-duplicate <name>allows same dependency to be declared in dev and peer dependencies (or other combinations). Useful if you are developing a plugin that requires the main tool (peer) but also uses the main tool for testing (dev).
$ deps-ok --allow-duplicate angular $ deps-ok --allow-duplicate angular --allow-duplicate jquery
--verboseprints verbose console messages, but using
DEBUG=deps-okis a better method
--skip-version-checkis used to load and check versions but skip actual physical file checks. Useful in end to end testing.
This check will reject packages without "version" property in the
