The command accepts the following options:

  • --coverage (-c) – Whether to generate the code coverage.

If you are going to change the component (src/ckeditor.js) or plugin (src/plugin.js) files, remember about rebuilding the package. You can use npm run develop in order to do it automatically.

Building the package

Build a minified version of the package that is ready to publish:

npm run build

Changelog generator

npm run changelog

Testing component with Vue CLI

When symlinking the component in an application generated using Vue CLI, make sure your vue.config.js file configures webpack in the following way:

module.exports = {
	configureWebpack: {
		resolve: {
			symlinks: false

Otherwise, the application will fail to load the component correctly and, as a result, it will throw a build error.

Releasing package


Before starting the release process, you need to generate the changelog:

npm run changelog


After generating the changelog, you are able to release the package.

First, you need to bump the version:

npm run release:prepare-packages

After bumping the version, you can publish the changes:

npm run release:publish-packages

Note: The release/ directory will be published.
