Ident

Combination of a scope and name, bound with a hash suitable for comparisons.

Use parseIdent to turn ident strings (@types/node) into the ident structure ({scope: types, name: node}), makeIdent to create a new one from known parameters, or stringifyIdent to retrieve the string as you’d see it in the dependencies field.
