dedupe-assert

asserts that packages are truly deduped

main JavaScript Style Guide TypeScript package

install

npm install [--save|--save-dev] dedupe-assert

usage

$ dedupe-assert --help
 
  Usage
    $ dedupe-assert --matches=<pattern> [/path/to/project]
 
  Options
    --matches, -m  Add one or many matches, in string or JS regex style, csv separated
 
  Examples
 
    # assert one thing deduped 
    $ dedupe-assert --matches=debug
 
    # assert web things deduped 
    $ dedupe-assert --matches=react,/webpack-*/,redux .
 
    # assert all things dedepud 
    $ dedupe-assert --matches=/.*/
 

when run on this very package, you can see not all dependencies are actually deduped:

$ dedupe-assert --matches=/.*/

😵!

to use a library:

import { assess, report } from 'dedupe-assert'
const { conflictedDepsByName } = await assess({ dirname: '/path/to/project' })
const report = await getReport({
  conflictedDepsByName,
  alertOnMatches: ['react', /best-package$/]
})
// then do great stuff.  see `src/` dir for TS interfaces

why

npm dedupe (and similar functions from other package managers) attempt to dedupe packages to save disk space and reuse package instances. in many cases, not deduping can actually break your application.

for instance, some packages may be stateful and expect to be singletons. if such packages are not deduped, code files consuming those package may break as they can end up referencing different instances, when they thought they were sharing.

dedupe-assert guarantees that packages are both logically and physically deduped.
