remote-git-tags

remote-git-tags Build Status

Get tags from a remote git repo

Like git ls-remote, which doesn't require cloning the repo, but this is 100% JavaScript, meaning no dependency on the Git binary.

Really just some minor glue to @chrisdickinson's awesome work on reimplementing Git in JavaScript.

I'm using this successfully against GitHub repos, but the underlaying modules are not that actively maintained, so I wouldn't recommend using this for production critical code.

Install

$ npm install --save remote-git-tags

Usage

const remoteGitTags = require('remote-git-tags');
 
remoteGitTags('github.com/sindresorhus/remote-git-tags').then(tags => {
    console.log(tags);
    //=> Map {'v1.0.0' => '69e308412e2a5cffa692951f0274091ef23e0e32'} 
});
