A script to allow you to publish the generated built files of your project to a specific branch in your repository.
I use this as part of my travis build with
semantic-release. I run the build as a
prepublish script, then as a
postpublish script, I run this script which commits the built files and pushes them to my
semantic-release post will create a release on github with that commit.
"scripts":"build": "echo 'building project'""prepublish": "npm run build""postpublish": "publish-latest""semantic-release": "semantic-release pre && npm publish && semantic-release post"
You can pass several options to
publish-latest to override the defaults. Here's the output of
$ publish-latest --help Usage: publish-latest [options] Options: -h, --help output usage information -V, --version output the version number -e, --user-email [email] User email to use for the release commit (defaults to author/first contributor email) -n, --user-name [name] User name to use for the release commit (defaults to author/first contributor name) -b, --branch [name] The branch to push the latest to (defaults to `latest`) -u, --url [url] The git URL to publish to (defaults to project git url) -r, --release-version [version] Version to release (defaults to package.json version) -a, --add "[file1 dir1 file2]" Files to add (defaults to `package.json dist`) -t, --temp-branch [name] Temp branch used for preparing the release (defaults to tmp/travis)
If you do not specify a
url then the script will derive one from your
package.json and then the script will add a
token to the GitHub URL so the commit can be pushed. This token comes from either
