If you frequently update you dependencies in small batches, you will avoid large and painful updates later. Then again, if you don't have good tests coverage, it's hazardous to update dependencies at any time.
Delete any unwanted version constraints from your Gemfile and run:
- Install npm-check-updates
yarn outdatedand read CHANGELOGs of major updated packages before you update. You might not be ready for some updates.
- Run these commands. You may or may not need to
cd client ncu -u -a yarn
Some combinations that I often run:
remove old installed
node_modules so you only get what corresponds to package.json
ncu -u -a && rm -rf node_modules && yarn
