Print an array of dependency objects using CSS-like selectors. More information: https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/v8/commands/npm-query.

  • Print direct dependencies:

npm query ':root > *'

  • Print all direct production/development dependencies:

npm query ':root > .{{prod|dev}}'

  • Print dependencies with a specific name:

npm query '#{{package_name}}'

  • Print dependencies with a specific name and within a semantic versioning range:

npm query #{{package_name}}@{{semantic_version}}

  • Print dependencies which have no dependencies:

npm query ':empty'

  • Find all dependencies with postinstall scripts and uninstall them:

npm query ":attr(scripts, [postinstall])" | jq 'map(.name) | join("\n")' -r | xargs -I {} npm uninstall {}

  • Find all Git dependencies and print which application requires them:

npm query ":type(git)" | jq 'map(.name)' | xargs -I {} npm why {}
