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
