Manage git repositories with semantic versioning

git-semver is a node module (and command line program) for managing git repositories using semantic versioning. It's basically just a nice git API that understands semantic versioning.

Open a local repository, select the latest tag that matches "~1.1.8" and check it's contents out into the repository's work tree.

var git = require('git-semver');
 
git.repository('path/to/repository')
  .latest('~1.1.8')
  .checkout(function (errref) {
    if (err) {
      console.log(err);
      process.exit(1);
    }
  });

API

The API is built around events and streams. Most methods return an event emitter and accept an optional callback that fires once the underlying emitter emits an end event or raises an error.

This allows for succinct code, that chains multiple methods (hello demeter) synchronously and waits until the asynchronous operations finish.

Most operations start from the repository class. Once instantiated the repository tries to resolve it's .git directory and – it its not a "bare" repository – the work tree.
