Yarn Plugin Outdated

Yarn plugin to show outdated dependencies.



Yarn 4

yarn plugin import

Yarn 3

yarn plugin import

Yarn 2

yarn plugin import


When run without arguments, this plugin will find outdated plugins in all workspaces of your project.

yarn outdated

Filter by dependency

You can easily filter dependencies using any valid micromatch glob pattern. This is especially useful when you want to check a set of related dependencies such as a component library or tools such as Babel or ESLint.

yarn outdated '@babel/*'

And, in case you were wondering, you can add multiple glob patterns!

yarn outdated '@babel/*' '@types/*'

Filter by workspace (--workspace, -w)

In addition to filtering dependencies, larger projects will find it very helpful to filter workspaces so only outdated dependencies in a set of workspaces will be included.

The simplest way to filter a workspace is by it's name. And just like dependency filtering, this flag supports glob patterns!

yarn outdated --workspace frontend

You can also filter workspaces by directory using either an absolute or relative path.

yarn outdated --workspace packages/a
yarn outdated --workspace /Users/mark/project/packages/a

The --workspace flag can be added multiple times to specify multiple glob patterns to match with. You can even mix and match directories and workspace names!

yarn outdated --workspace packages/a --workspace frontend

Tip: Specifying --workspace . will use the current working directory.

Filter by severity (--severity, -s)

It's not always possible to update to the latest major version, and likewise you may not care about every single patch release to packages. Don't worry, we've got your back! With the --severity option, you can specify which severity levels to include. By default, we show all but if you only want to display minor versions updates, you could use this command.

yarn outdated --severity minor

Also, this flag can be specified multiple times if you would like to include multiple severities, such as minor and patch versions, as shown in the following example.

yarn outdated --severity minor --severity patch

Filter by type (--type, -t)

The final means of filtering outdated dependencies is by dependency type. For example, to only display outdated devDependencies, use the following command.

yarn outdated --type devDependencies

Include the wanted range

By default, only the latest version of dependencies are displayed. However, in some cases you may wish to know both the latest version and the version that satisfies the range specified in your manifest.

yarn outdated --range

For example if you have "glob": "^7.2.0" in your manifest, the output with this flag might look something like this.

➤ YN0000: Package   Current   Range   Latest   Package Type
➤ YN0000: glob      7.2.0     7.2.3   8.0.3    devDependencies

Check mode (--check, -c)

By default, this plugin will always return an exit code 0 even if there are outdated dependencies. While this is perfect for normal use, if you want to use this plugin with scripts and fail if there are outdated dependencies, you can add the --check flag.

yarn outdated --check

Display homepage URLs (--url)

It is possible to display dependency homepage URLs in the output. To do so, simply add the --url flag to the command!

yarn outdated --url

Format (--format)

In addition to the standard terminal text format, this plugin supports JSON and markdown formatting.

JSON (--format=json)

If you are writing a script that depends on information from this plugin, you may find the --format=json option helpful to get raw JSON data that you can then parse and use as your needs require.

Markdown (--format=markdown)

If you are using this plugin in a GitHub action or other CI provider that displays markdown content, use --format=markdown to display a formatted markdown table.


Include homepage URLs by default (outdatedIncludeUrl)

By default, homepage URLs are not included in the output. In addition to the --url flag, you can configure URLs to show by default.

outdatedIncludeUrl: true

When this setting is enabled, you can use the --no-url flag to disable it on a per-command basis.

yarn outdated --no-url
