Quickly checks if top level dependencies are missing or out of date
Quickly checks if top level dependencies are missing or out of date using deps-ok
This plugin requires Grunt
If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-deps-ok --save-dev
That's it! Every time grunt runs, it will quickly check if all (normal, dev, peer) top level dependencies are present in the node_modules folder. It will also verify that the installed module versions are greater or equal to the ones declared inside package.json file.
You can configure further by providing options
// Gruntfile.js'deps-ok':options:verbose: trueforce: true // print error message, but pass the taskskipBower: false // do not check bower.json even if existsfolder: 'path/to/folder/with/package.json' // options, by default current folder
There are other modules that check npm dependencies, for example grunt-check-modules.
It seems to rely on
npm ls command that takes a long time to go through the dependency tree.
In my projects, deps_ok step takes less than 100ms, compared to 5-10 seconds for grunt-check-modules.
