re: What are those PeerDependencies in a NodeJS project? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Nice article. I got several questions about it.

  1. the solution for the error in the screenshot is the maintainer of react-redux package should declare a peerDependency of react@0.14.0 in its package.json. am I right?
  2. My second question is why they let this error happen. why do you let the jacksFunciton take an jillsObject of version2 instead of the version 1 that it needs? I assume the person who call jacksFunction already know the exact version it needs.
 

Hey!
Thx for your questions.

  1. what you've described, is what the maintainer of the react-redux package has already done, see here github.com/reduxjs/react-redux/blo.... That's the reason why the warning is thrown here. The solution to this warning is, that the developer of that project (that uses react-redux) has to add react@0.14.0 on its own as a project dependency.

  2. "... I assume the person who call jacksFunction already know the exact version it needs." > the person who calls jacksFunction might not necessarily know this when installing and initially using the npm package jacksmodule. The definition of a peer dependency in jacksmodule's package.json will throw the helping hint that the person should install the proper version of jillsModule.

Hope that helped to answer your questions (?).
