Get dependencies written in package.json from JavaScript code

This is just a memo about how to refer dependencies written in package.json from JavaScript code.

import pkg from './package.json';

const dependencies = Object.keys(pkg.dependencies);
const devDependencies = Object.keys(pkg.devDependencies);
const peerDependencies = Object.keys(pkg.peerDependencies);

It would be useful in case of specifying externals in rollup.config.js.

  external: Object.keys(pkg.dependencies)
