CLI Semver autoincrement with major, minor, and patch.


Using Semver to increment your package.json (and bower.json, component.json) npm version based on the major, minor, patch. Your cwd can be a child of the directory where your JSON config files reside – Vik will recursively find them thanks to ParentPath!

Install: npm install vik -gwith -g (global) npm will automatically add vik to your $PATH.
