Discussion on: I'm upgrading a React frontend that's an year old. My current process is slow and painful. How could I speed it up?

Do you need new features from some lib? If so then update only that lib.

Otherwise, I really only care about major versions of the packages that are essential to my app, like React, Babel, React-Router, Redux, Webpack... And those don't update their major versions that often, and usually they have some sort of migration guide.

For easy projects, React codemod helped me a lot on upgrading some of my stupid projects.

And most other projects that have deep dependencies are almost left alone untouched because of the time it will consume.
