Why to write depu

When I maintain go-zero, I often need to check if any updates on my dependencies.

Some advantages on keeping up-to-date:

  • get more features
  • known bugs or security issues get fixed
  • not breaking for deprecated usages on must upgrade

And go list lists all the dependent packages for both direct and indirect usages, and Indirect fields always telling true. For details, check this issue: golang/go#40364

Design ideas

  • use go list -u -m -json all to get all the available updates for both direct and indirect usages.
  • parse local go.mod to get directly required packages.
  • only display the availabe updates for directly required packages.


$ go install[email protected]

How to use

In the directory of go.mod, run the following command:

$ depu
