Description

npm-dview is a command line tool for comparing a package.json file's dependency version numbers with the latest remote version number.

It compares both "dependencies" and/or "devDependencies".

It accomplishes this by calling "npm view MODULE_NAME version" for each dependency listed in your package.json file.
