There's currently no npm command for retrieving a list or count of modules that depend on a given package.
This is a useful metric for evaluating a modules potential usefulness.
[sudo] npm -g install npm-dependents
npm-dependents [module] npm-dependents [-l] [--list] [module] npm-dependents [-r] [--raw] [module] npm-dependents [-h] [--help] With no flags, shows a count of all dependents. -h | --help Shows usage -l | --list List all dependents -r | --raw Show only the count, not surrounding text If a module name is not provided the current directory is expected to contain a package.json with a name field, which is then used as the module name.
