Is a tool which helps you safely upgrade your NPM dependencies.

Build Status


Running Bramble will look at each dependency in your package.json, and one by one will ask if you want to update that dependency (with the --prompt flag). If you let it, Bramble will then download the latest version of that dependency, optionally (with the --test flag) running your test suite to check for any breaking changes in the new version. Finally, Bramble will (with the --save flag) write the new version to your package.json.
