Dependency Management Data

What is it?

Dependency Management Data (DMD) is a set of tooling to get a better understanding of the use of dependencies across your organisation.

The aim is to provide you with a set of queryable data about how your projects use configured, so you can target changes across your projects and organisation more appropriately.

What can it tell me?

Have you ever wondered any of the below?

If so, this suite of Free and Open Source software is for you. You can get a similar offering to some vendors, completely for free 🤑

How does it work?

There is a command-line tool, dmd, which aims to make this an easier way to interact with the data.

Once you have collected the data through one of the supported tools you can then import it.

Once imported, you can use the inbuilt dmd-web tool to get a Web frontend (including SQLite frontend via Datasette), load it locally through your preferred SQLite interface, or use one of the built-in reports.

If you want more of an idea of the command-line tool before you download it, check out the docs for dmd.
