To use this module programmatically, write streaming object data and read streaming object data:

var sort = require('../')();
var JSONStream = require('JSONStream');
var parse = JSONStream.parse([ true ]);
var stringify = JSONStream.stringify();



var depsSort = require('deps-sort');

var stream = depsSort(opts)

Return a new through stream that should get written module-deps objects and will output sorted objects.

opts can be:

  • opts.index - when true, for each module-deps row, insert row.index with the numeric index and row.indexDeps like row.deps but mapping require strings to row indices

  • opts.expose - array of names or object mapping names to true not to mangle with integer indexes when opts.index is turned on. If opts.expose maps names to strings, those strings will be used to resolve the indexed references.

  • opts.dedupe - set row.dedupe for files that match existing contents. Sets row.dedupeIndex when opts.index is enabled. When row.dedupe is set, row.sameDeps will be set to a boolean of whether the dependencies at the dedupe target match (true) or just the source content (false).


With npm do:

npm install deps-sort
