0.0.3 • Public • Published


Visualize JavaScript source complexity with plato. It supports .js .jsx .vue Based on the older es5 plato, this is a port to es6 and eslint

The Report


Start in 3 steps.

  1. Install. npm install --save-dev jsplato

  2. Add.

"scripts" : {
    "jsplato": "jsplato -r -d ./report src",
  1. Run. npm run jsplato


Install the module with: npm install --save-dev jsplato


From scripts

//be sure and set your src, output, and any options.
let src = "./scripts/**/*.js";
let outputDir = "./artifacts/plato";
let platoArgs = {
  title: "example",
  eslint: {}
//you can use the reports in the callback.
function callback(reports) {
  let overview = plato.getOverviewReport(reports);
  let { total, average } = overview.summary;
  let output = `total
    eslint: ${total.eslint}
    sloc: ${total.sloc}
    maintainability: ${total.maintainability}
    eslint: ${average.eslint}
    sloc: ${average.sloc}
    maintainability: ${average.maintainability}`;
//usage is plato.inspect
plato.inspect(src, outputDir, platoArgs, callback);

Example Gulpfile

let gulp = require("gulp");
let plato = require("jsplato");

    "no-console": [1],
    curly: ["error"],
    "no-dupe-keys": 2,
    "func-names": [1, "always"]
  env: {

  globals: ["require"],
  parserOptions: {
    sourceType: "module",
    ecmaFeatures: {
      jsx: true,
      modules: true
let complexityRules = {};
let platoArgs = {
  title: "example",
  eslint: lintRules,
  complexity: complexityRules
function analysis() {
  return plato.inspect(src, outputDir, platoArgs);
gulp.task("analysis", analysis);

Note for Windows Users: If you are on Windows, you might want to put your glob in quotes if you use a tool such as cygwin, conemu or some other emulator, and you are also targeting files in directories, otherwise the emulator might incorrectly expand the glob before it is handled internally by es6-plato. For instance, if you want to use /src/**/*.js and the results are ignoring the root try './src/**/*.js' instead.

base on above work

| 0.0.1 | supports .vue | | 0.0.3 | supports .ts and .tsx |


This is currently a reimplementation of the older plato, and started as a fork from https://github.com/deedubs/es6-plato, but has since been heavily modified. After seeing it was unpublished on npm and also wanting to add more features, I Asked if it would be alright for me to publish and continue the work. This project uses eslint, not jshint for default linting.

I have switched to the typhon-js module since it properly parses classes.
