When using npm there is a built-in tool to check for dependencies updates too.
npm outdated shows you list of outdated packages.
But there is a better tool for that! Using npm-check-updates to check for updates and updating your
package.json is a no-brainer.
npm-check-updates is a command-line tool that allows you to upgrade your package.json or bower.json dependencies to the latest versions, regardless of existing version constraints.
npm install -g npm-check-updates
nuxt ^1.0.0 → ^2.2.0
node-sass ^4.9.2 → ^4.9.4
vue-scrollto ^2.11.0 → ^2.13.0
Run with -u to upgrade your package.json
Well, wasn't that easy? It shows which packages have updates and using the flag -u it automatically replaces the version in package.json.
