    3.8.0 • Public • Published


    A static dependencies analyzer for your JavaScript and TypeScript projects.


    • Supports CommonJS, ESM.
    • Supports JavaScript and TypeScript completely.
      • Supports TypeScript path mapping.
      • Supports ignore TypeScript type dependency
    • Light weight: use typescript to parse all modules.
    • Fast: use asynchronous API to load modules.
    • Stable output: This is compared to madge, whose results are completely inconclusive when analyze TypeScript.

      --version            Show version number                                                 [boolean]
      --context            the context directory to shorten path, default is current directory  [string]
      --extensions, --ext  comma separated extensions to resolve
                                                      [string] [default: ".ts,.tsx,.mjs,.js,.jsx,.json"]
      --js                 comma separated extensions indicate the file is js like

      --output, -o         output json to file                                                  [string]
      --tree               print tree to stdout                                [boolean] [default: true]

      --tsconfig           the tsconfig path, which is used for resolve path alias, default is

      --transform, -T      transform typescript modules to javascript before analyze, it allows you to
                           omit types dependency in typescript                [boolean] [default: false]
      --exit-code          exit with specified code, the value format is CASE:CODE, `circular` is the
                           only supported CASE, CODE should be a integer between 0 and 128. For example:
                           `dpdm --exit-code circular:1` the program will exit with code 1 if circular
                           dependency found.                                                    [string]

    The result example:

    Usage in module

    import { parseDependencyTree, parseCircular, prettyCircular } from 'dpdm';
    parseDependencyTree('./index', {
      /* options, see below */
    }).then((tree) => {
      const circulars = parseCircular(tree);


    1. parseDependencyTree(entries, option, output): parse dependencies for glob entries

       * @param entries - the glob entries to match
       * @param options - the options, see below
      export declare function parseDependencyTree(
        entries: string | string[],
        options: ParserOptions,
      ): Promise<DependencyTree>;
       * the parse options
      export interface ParseOptions {
        context: string; // context to shorten filename,           default is process.cwd()
        extensions: string[]; // the custom extensions to resolve file, default is [ '.ts', '.tsx', '.mjs', '.js', '.jsx', '.json' ]
        include: RegExp; // the files to parse match regex,        default is /\.m?[tj]sx?$/
        exclude: RegExp; // the files to ignore parse,             default is /\/node_modules\//
      export enum DependencyKind {
        CommonJS = 'CommonJS', // require
        StaticImport = 'StaticImport', // import ... from "foo"
        DynamicImport = 'DynamicImport', // import("foo")
        StaticExport = 'StaticExport', // export ... from "foo"
      export interface Dependency {
        issuer: string;
        request: string;
        kind: DependencyKind;
        id: string | null; // the shortened, resolved filename, if cannot resolve, it will be null
      // the parse tree result, key is file id, value is its dependencies
      // if file is ignored, it will be null
      export type DependencyTree = Record<string, Dependency[] | null>;
    2. parseCircular(tree): parse circulars in dependency tree

      export declare function parseCircular(tree: DependencyTree): string[][];
