API

> logicalTree(pkg, lock) -> LogicalTree

Calculates a logical tree based on a matching package.json and package-lock.json pair. A "logical tree" is a fully-nested dependency graph for an npm package, as opposed to a physical tree which might be flattened.

logical-tree will represent deduplicated/flattened nodes using the same object throughout the tree, so duplication can be checked by object identity.

Example
const pkg = require('./package.json')
const pkgLock = require('./package-lock.json')
 
logicalTree(pkg, pkgLock)
// returns:
LogicalTree {
  name: 'npm-logical-tree',
  version: '1.0.0',
  address: null,
  optional: false,
  dev: false,
  bundled: false,
  resolved: undefined,
  integrity: undefined,
  requiredBy: Set { },
  dependencies:
   Map {
     'foo' => LogicalTree {
       name: 'foo',
       version: '1.2.3',
       address: 'foo',
       optional: false,
       dev: true,
       bundled: false,
       resolved: 'https://registry.npmjs.org/foo/-/foo-1.2.3.tgz',
       integrity: 'sha1-rYUK/p261/SXByi0suR/7Rw4chw=',
       requiredBy: Set { ... },
       dependencies: Map { ... }
