Build Status Coverage Dependency Status

A plugin for ESDoc that adds D3 interactive dependency graphs for packages and source code managed by JSPM / SystemJS and soon NPM. A context menu is available that opens associated Github / NPM links.

Please note that this plugin is in heavy development and currently only JSPM package dependency graphs are available. You must use esdoc-plugin-jspm version 0.6.6 or higher for this plugin to work.

Installation steps:

  • Install esdoc in devDependencies in package.json.
  • Install esdoc-plugin-dependency-graphs in devDependencies in package.json.
  • Install esdoc-plugin-jspm if using JSPM / SystemJS in devDependencies in package.json.
  • Create an .esdocrc or esdoc.json configuration file adding the plugin.
  • Optionally add an .esdocrc or esdoc.json configuration file in all JSPM managed packages to link.
  • Run ESdoc then profit!

For more information view the ESDoc tutorial and ESDoc Config documentation.

It should be noted that all TyphonJS repos now are standardizing on .esdocrc for the ESDoc configuration file. Both .esdocrc and esdoc.json are supported by the esdoc-plugin-jspm and forthcoming esdoc-plugin-npm plugin.

As an alternate and the preferred all inclusive installation process please see typhonjs-npm-build-test for a NPM package which contains several dependencies for building / testing ES6 NPM modules including ESDoc generation with the following plugins including esdoc-plugin-jspm, esdoc-plugin-extends-replace. Please note that the next release of typhonjs-npm-build-test will include esdoc-plugin-dependency-graphs and presently it is not included. When esdoc-plugin-dependency-graphs reaches 0.1.0 it will be included in typhonjs-npm-build-test version 0.2.0.

Additionally typhonjs-core-gulptasks provides a NPM package which contains several pre-defined Gulp tasks for working with JSPM / SystemJS, ESLint and ESDoc generation.

For the latest significant changes please see the CHANGELOG.

If installing and working directly with esdoc-plugin-dependency-graphs the following is an example integration including JSPM support via esdoc-plugin-jspm for package.json:


  "devDependencies": {
    "esdoc": "^0.4.0",
    "esdoc-plugin-dependency-graphs": "^0.0.3",  
    "esdoc-plugin-jspm": "^0.6.0", 
    "jspm": "^0.16.0"
  "scripts": {
    "esdoc": "esdoc -c .esdocrc"
  "jspm": {
    "main": "<main entry point>",
    "dependencies": {
     "devDependencies": {

And the .esdocrc or esdoc.json configuration file:

   "title": "<title>",
   "source": "src",
   "destination": "docs",
      { "name": "esdoc-plugin-jspm" },  
      { "name": "esdoc-plugin-dependency-graphs" }

Given the NPM script defined in package.json then simply run npm run esdoc.

Below is a demo image of the JSPM dependency graph generated for the backbone-parse-es6 Github package loaded via JSPM. While not pictured a context click on graph nodes opens a context menu which will provide links to Github or NPM depending on the code being managed. For the context menu links to work for NPM packages you must include the repository field in package.json. JSPM currently supports packages from Github and NPM; Github packages are colored orange and NPM packages are colored light red. Aliased JSPM packages where the assigned name does not match the package name the package / folder is red. In the overflow menu options you may show a table view of all packages and show / hide aliased packages names.
