The procedure to release nrf-device-lib-js is described in the internal wiki.

Notes (Q/A):

Q: I see no output of the console.log() in the CI A: Possible solution would be to add spyOn(console, 'log').and.callThrough(); in beforeAll() -- from stackoverflow

Q: I want to add tab in the test logging A: Add \t at the start of console.warn('\t', message);

Q: How can I conditionally skip a test? A: You can use xit instead if it for running the test callback. See https://jasmine.github.io/api/4.6/global.html#xit for more info.
