    github-post-release

    Forms release changelog and posts a note to each referenced issues after semantic release publishes a new module version

    NPM

    Build status semantic-release js-standard-style next-update-travis badge

    Problem

    When publishing new version of your NPM package, it would be nice to comment on each GitHub issue referenced by the semantic commits, letting the user know that the fix / feature was published.

    This module works as a semantic-release generate notes plugin. It both comments on referenced issues and returns the changelog to be posted on GitHub. Each issue will get a comment like this (example)

    Typical comment

    Install and use

    Requires Node version 6 or above.

    npm install --save-dev github-post-release

    The postinstall script will automatically set this module to be the generateNotes plugin for the release. If you want you can do this manually:

    {
      "release": {
        "generateNotes": "github-post-release"
      }
    }

    Message types

    By default, the output message for issues will be "New version has been published to NPM ...". This might not match other scenarios when this plugin can be used. For example if you deploy a website and publish release notes to GitHub, you might like different text that does not mention NPM. There are two built-in message types: "npm", "deploy" and you can pick on to generate by configuring this plugin like this in package.json

    {
      "release": {
        "generateNotes": {
          "path": "github-post-release",
          "type": "deploy"
        }
      }
    }

    Debug

    To see more log messages, run this plugin with DEBUG=github-post-release flag. You can even demo the plugin locally (without actual GitHub updates) using npm run demo.

    It was inspired by semantic-release-github-notifier, release-notes-generator and uses conventional-changelog to generate changelog text after commenting on issues.
