Know Your Dependencies!

This is a command-line NPM module that picks a random dependency from your project and gives you some info about it.

You probably have a lot of dependencies that you've never heard of and you have absolutely no idea what they do. Is that a good thing? Probably not. That's the whole point of this.

cd my-hot-shit-js-project
npx know-your-deps

It looks for a package-lock.json in the folder you run it in.

But I use Yarn.

Well, aren't you fancy.

yarn global add know-your-deps
cd my-hot-shit-js-project

Thanks to Hal for the PR.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
