Dependabot: what is your favorite configuration (approach)?

Hello everyone! You probably well know and often use Dependabot in your projects. It's quite nice tool for automating the management of a project dependencies. I also use it on many Github repositories I manage. And recently I started noticing that I spend quite some time to manage the PRs. Dependabot can easily overwhelm you with the auto-generated PRs. Especially if you manage many repositories.

My typical config is quite simple right now:

# .github/dependabot.yml

version: 2
updates:
  - package-ecosystem: npm
    directory: "/"
    schedule:
      interval: daily
    commit-message:
      prefix: "[skip ci]: "
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I was wondering what hacks do you guys use in your routine? Maybe you have found a nice approach here? Please share it if so! Thank you all in advance!
