Quickly view a list of open issues for the open-source packages that your project depends on.

shoulders demo

Terminal theme: Rivet by themer


npx shoulders

shoulders will find dependencies in the node_modules folder, identify corresponding repositories on GitHub, and query GitHub's API for open issues.

If your project depends on many packages you will likely run into rate limiting errors from the GitHub API; you can increase the limit by using a personal access token (the only scope needed is public_repo) and passing it to shoulders via the $GITHUB_TOKEN environment variable:

GITHUB_TOKEN='<your token>' npx shoulders


Modern software would not be possible without the mountains of previous work by others—much of it open source—as its foundation. In the spirit of Hacktoberfest 2019, this simple script makes it a little bit easier to find a way to support the projects that we depend on so heavily.
