Automatic Versioning Scripts

Build Status NPM Version NPM Downloads

A node.js package that contains functions to manage versions.


npm install autovs-scripts


After you have installed the autovs-scripts, you can use it on your code. Follow the code below.

// Initialize the versions component
const versions = require('autovs-scripts');

// Create a version object based on the given string
var myVersion = versions.parseVersion('v1.2.3-alpha.1+001250');

console.log(`Current major is: ${myVersion.major}`);
// Current major is: 1

console.log(`Current firm version is: ${myVersion.firmVersion().formattedVersion()}`);
// Current firm version is: v1.2.3

// Bump version
var myBumpedVersion = versions.bumpVersion('v1.2.3-alpha.1+001250', 'major', 2000);

console.log(`Bumped version is: ${myBumpedVersion.formattedVersion()}`);
// Bumped version is: v2.0.0-alpha.1+002000

The versions object will expose the following methods:

Method Description
parseVersion() Parses a string into a version object
bumpVersion() Bump the given version to the next level
newVersionObject() Creates a version object based on the given input

Version Object

Both parseVersion() and bumpVersion() return a version object. This object is composed of the following members:

Member Description
major The version major
minor The version minor
patch The version patch
preReleaseIdentifier The pre-release identifier (alpha, beta, rc)
preReleaseVersion The pre-release version
preReleaseBuild The build number (only for pre-releases)
formattedVersion() Returns the formatted version (Example: v1.2.0-alpha.1+001210)
firmVersion() Returns the firm version (Example: for v1.2.0-alpha.1+001210, this method will return v1.2.0)

You can manually create a Version Object by calling the newVersionObject().
