How do I find all the installed dependency packages for a particular package in npm?

Asked 2 years ago

I've been coding for a couple of years now (primarily in Java) but I've recently made the switch to web and I'm using nodeJs. I can see that there's a wide usage of dependencies and packages, so I'd like to know which packages depend on each other, so I can remove the redundant ones.

The node terminal has an in-built function for interdependent packages. Just write npm ls packageName and you'll see a set of files that are dependent on the package. You can also use npm explain packageName to understand why a specific package is needed and if it depends on any other package in your project.
