Whitelisting of node modules

Lockdown your modules by specifying a list of approved modules and versions (with semver). Packlock will scan against this list and report modules that are unapproved or at an unapproved version.


npm install grunt-retire --save-dev

Add to your gruntfile:

packlock: {
scan: {
options: {
whitelist: 'test/packlock.json',
recurse: true

The policy consists of a simple .json file containing modules and versions. Semver is used to check version so you can use ranges etc. as specified on the semver page.
