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:

What does updater-travis do?

Most updaters do one specific thing. This updater adds a .travis.yml file or replaces the .travis.yml file in the current working directory using a template defined by you in ~/templates/_travis.yml (user home on your system), or the generic template in this project's templates directory.

Getting started


Installing the CLI

To run updater-travis from the command line, you'll need to install Update globally first. You can do that now with the following command:

$ npm install --global update

This adds the update command to your system path, allowing it to be run from any directory.

Install updater-travis

Install this module with the following command:

$ npm install --global updater-travis


Make sure your work is committed, then run the updater's default task with the following command:

$ update travis

What will happen?

Upon running $ update travis command, this updater's default task will be executed, which replaces the .travis.yml file in the cwd with the ~/templates/_travis.yml template defined by you, or the default templates found in templates/_travis.yml in this repository.

(Note that all dotfile templates are prefixed with an underscore to prevent programs from mistaking them as real files)


Visit the documentation for tasks.
