I've been working on a few node apps lately, and have sometimes been specifying specific
version numbers in my package.json files
rather than using Tilde-Version-Ranges
or X-Version-Ranges. When specifying specific
version numbers, running
npm update will not update those packages.
There's not an easy way to compare the versions you specified in your package.json file with the latest remotely published version.
In comes npm-dview to the rescue. Check out the project page for screenshots and other usage instructions.
Or install now by running:
npm install -g npm-dview
