How check consistency npm-shrinkwrap.json and package.json

Sometimes my team members forgot to update npm-shrinkwrap.json after update package.json. I know this package from uber, but it can not be used with npm v3. So now it is not solution.

Do have I possibility to auto check consistency for npm-shrinkwrap.json and package.json? I want to do this in git-hook or/and continuous.


You can test out the npm package git-hooks, which allows to install pre-commit or pre-push hooks (that is client-side hooks)

Such hooks (like this pre-commit one) can be used to check the consistency of source files like npm-shrinkwrap.json.

See also for instance turadg/npm-shrinkwrap-git-hooks

A set of scripts to automatically npm shrinkwrap and npm install as needed.

If you stage a change to package.json, the pre-commit hook will run npm shrinkwrap to update npm-shrinkwrap.json.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# This ensures that dependencies are installed locally whenever merging a commit
# that changed the shrinkwrap.

function package_changes_staged {
  ! git diff --cached  --quiet -- package.json

# update shrinkwrap when spec changes
if package_changes_staged; then
  echo "Running 'npm shrinkwrap' to match new package spec..." >&2
  npm shrinkwrap
  git add npm-shrinkwrap.json
