Node Modules Check

Description

This script looks up your package.json and tells you if there are any outdated packages. In case of outdated packages the script returns an exit code 1, otherwise 0. It uses npm outdated --json under the hood.

Features

  • ignore specific packages to be marked as outdated
  • sort packages by version difference (major → minor → patch)
  • indicate version difference by color
  • display type of dependency
  • show the homepage setting from the package.json of the outdated package

output

Installation

npm install --save-dev @sum.cumo/node-modules-check

Usage

check-node-modules

Configuration

You can set up packages that should be ignored in a configuration file.

Example:

{
  "ignore": [
    "eslint"
  ],
  "ignoreRegex": [
    "([a-z])." //regex can be used as well
  ],
  "ignoreDev": true, // ignore dev dependencies
  "ignoreSemver": [ // ignore semantic version
    "prerelease"
  ]
}

The configuration file can be specified through

check-node-modules --config path/to/some/config/file

or by placing a file named .check-node-modules.config.json in your projects folder.

Purpose example: GitLab CI

At sum.cumo we run this check in a scheduled pipeline in GitLab CI in order to check for outdated node modules regularly and automatically.

Dev workflow

  1. npm install
  2. ./bin/check.js

This will run the package on itself.
