Usage

Creating a Graph Instance

var graph = new DependencyGraph();

Declaring a Dependency between two nodes

// The human has now a dependency to the air.
graph.subject('human').dependsOn('air');

Checking Dependencies & Direction

// I need to know if air is a dependency of human.
graph.subject('air').isDependencyOf('human');
=> true

// I need to know if human has a dependency to the air
graph.subject('human').hasDependencyTo('air');
=> true

Inspecting Dependencies

// What nodes are referencing 'air' as a dependency?
graph.subject('air').references
=> ['human']

// What nodes are dependencies of 'human'?
graph.subject('human').dependencies
=> ['air']

Removing a Dependency

// The human don't want to depend of the air anymore.
graph.subject('human').drop('air');

graph.subject('human').dependencies
=> []

// The references are automatically removed.
graph.subject('air').references
=> []
