action-graph

v1.15.0

The moon action-graph [target] (or moon ag) command will generate and serve a visual graph of all actions and tasks within the workspace, known as the action graph. In other tools, this is sometimes referred to as a dependency graph or task graph.

# Run the visualizer locally
$ moon action-graph

# Export to DOT format
$ moon action-graph --dot > graph.dot

A target can be passed to focus the graph, including dependencies and dependents. For example, moon action-graph app:build.

Arguments

  • [target] - Optional target to focus.

Options

  • --dot - Output the graph in DOT format.

Example output

The following output is an example of the graph in DOT format.
