Mod Portal Feature Request: show dependency graph

Post by sparr »

Simpler request first... In the mod portal UI I'd like to see the dependency list for a mod, and be able to click through to those other mods.

Actual request that prompted this post... I'd like to see all the mods that depend on the one I'm interested in.

My use case for this, at this moment, is "how popular is the signal strings mod, among mod developers?". I don't want to know how many players use it, I want to know how many other mods depend on it and use it. https://github.com/search?l=&q=signalst ... &type=code tells me there are ~5 mods on github that depend on it, but many mod portal mods aren't on github.
