Edit package

This package is a work-in-progress. Some aspects may be awaiting improvement.

To use this package, add suite.state(gulp) to your Gulpfile:

/* gulpfile.js */
const gulp = require("gulp");
const suite = require("@cloudcannon/suite");



Running gulp state will build a dependency graph and save it as JSON in your reports/ directory. A local webserver will be started on port 9001, using the JSON file to create an interactive visualisation of the dependency graph.

The state package needs to scan your compiled site - make sure you run gulp dev:build before gulp state.

$ gulp state

In the visualiser, you can toggle between viewing the dependencies of an asset, and viewing the dependants of an asset.

Running gulp state:find-unused will print a list of unused assets to the console. This uses the dependency graph in reports/, so make sure to run gulp state:dependencies or gulp state first.



Copies the JSON files from the reports directory to the build destination directory, along with an HTML template. This acts as a static site you can use to visualise dependencies.

$ gulp state:build


Deletes everything in the build destination directory.

$ gulp state:clean


Scans the compiled site for asset references, builds a dependency graph, and creates a JSON file report in the reports directory.

$ gulp state:dependencies


Reads the report generated by state:dependencies, builds a reversed graph, and creates a JSON file in the reports directory. Make sure to run gulp state:dependencies first, if you are running this subtask manually.

$ gulp state:dependents


Scans the dependency tree and prints unused assets to the console. Make sure to run gulp state:dependencies first.

$ gulp state:find-unused
