Depot Clojars Project

Find newer versions of your dependencies in your deps.edn file using the Clojure CLI. This works for maven and git dependencies.


You can try it out easily with this one liner:

$ clojure -Sdeps '{:deps {olical/depot {:mvn/version "1.5.0"}}}' -m depot.outdated.main

|          Dependency | Current | Latest |
| org.clojure/clojure |   1.8.0 |  1.9.0 |

I'd recommend adding depot as an alias in your own deps.edn file, this will allow it to check itself for updates:

Note: Replace the ellipsis with the current version shown above.

{:deps {}
 :aliases {:outdated {:extra-deps {olical/depot {:mvn/version "..."}}
                      :main-opts ["-m" "depot.outdated.main"]}}}
$ clojure -Aoutdated -a outdated

|   Dependency | Current | Latest |
| olical/depot |   ..... |  ..... |

Updating deps.edn

To automatically update the versions in deps.edn, use --update.

$ clojure -m depot.outdated.main --update
Updating: deps.edn
  rewrite-clj {:mvn/version "0.6.0"} -> {:mvn/version "0.6.1"}
  cider/cider-nrepl {:mvn/version "0.17.0"} -> {:mvn/version "0.18.0"}
  clj-time {:mvn/version "0.14.4"} -> {:mvn/version "0.15.1"}
  olical/cljs-test-runner {:sha "5a18d41648d5c3a64632b5fec07734d32cca7671"} -> {:sha "da9710b389782d4637ef114176f6e741225e16f0"}

This will leave any formatting, whitespace, and comments intact. It will update both the top level deps and any :aliases / :extra-deps. To prevent Depot from touching certain parts of your deps.edn, mark them with the ^:depot/ignore metadata.

{:deps {...}

 {;; used for testing against older versions of Clojure
  :clojure-1.8 ^:depot/ignore {:extra-deps
                               {org.clojure/clojure {:mvn/version "1.8.0"}}}
  :clojure-1.9 ^:depot/ignore {:extra-deps
                               {org.clojure/clojure {:mvn/version "1.9.0"}}}}}

--update by default looks for deps.edn in the current working directory. You can instead pass one or more filenames in explicitly.

$ clojure -m depot.outdated.main --update ../my-project/deps.edn

Existing work

This project is inspired by lein-ancient, it relies on version-clj (by the same author, xsc) for parsing and comparison of version numbers.
