Hey Renaud Lapoële!

Thanks for the kind words.

“npm-check” is pretty comprehensive. It does have the added benefit of not needing to alter any files in your repo also.

Writing an update script is just a quick and dirty solution for the brave to get round the limitations of “npm update” haha. The upside is that it will always work.

I have to say I don’t currently use “npm-check” but I was aware of some CLI tools to handle the issue. However, sometimes I’m deterred when I see some of the issues they can have like only working in some node versions etc.

Like what you read? Give Jhey Tompkins a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
