Hook Hook

The deprecated action is fired with three parameters: the name of the deprecated feature, the options object passed to deprecated, and the message sent to the console.


import { addAction } from '@wordpress/hooks';

function addDeprecationAlert( message, { version } ) {
    alert( `Deprecation: ${ message }. Version: ${ version }` );    

addAction( 'deprecated', 'my-plugin/add-deprecation-alert', addDeprecationAlert );

Code is Poetry.
