CLI for querying node_modules

Terminal utilities
Our review

What we like

Makes it quick to search through the node_modules directory for specific packages. Can find all instances of a given package, including where it's a dependency of another package. Shows the version info and how that relates to the current latest release. Helps find all your sub-dependencies. Supports fuzzy search.

What we don't like

Missing full support for pnpm due to how pnpm structures node_modules with links.
