A Hashrocket project

Visualize Your Elixir Dependencies

To visualize your Elixir dependencies, try this:

$ mix deps.tree

This prints a tree showing your dependencies (and their dependencies):

$ mix deps.tree
tilex
├── gettext ~> 0.13 (Hex package)
├── hackney 1.8.0 (Hex package)
│   ├── certifi 1.1.0 (Hex package)
│   ├── idna 4.0.0 (Hex package)
│   ├── metrics 1.0.1 (Hex package)
│   ├── mimerl 1.0.2 (Hex package)
│   └── ssl_verify_fun 1.1.1 (Hex package)

This is really handy when trying to track down where a deprecation warning or error is coming from.
