What is "Update"?

Update is a new, open-source developer framework for automating updates of any kind to code projects. All actual updating is done plugins called "updaters", like this one.

Updaters can be run from the command line when Update's CLI is installed globally, or they can be used as building blocks for creating other updaters.

For more information:


Tasks are modularized in an effort to make it as easy as possible for you to create your own a-la-carte updater experience. As such:

  • some tasks update one specific file
  • some tasks update multiple files
  • some tasks are just aliases for running "groups" of tasks

Running tasks

To run a task, just run $ update git-tags: followed by the name of the task to run. For example, either of the following commands can be used to run the git-tags task:

$ update updater-git-tags:git-tags
$ update updater-git-tags:default

Available tasks


Update the git tags for a project. This task is an alias for the git-tags task, to allow running this updater with the following command:


$ update git-tags


Update the git tags for a project. Also aliased as the default task. This will only find missing git tags if there is a git commit with a version number.


$ update git-tags:git-tags
