Semantic Release is a Node module that will automate package publishing to NPM. It can detect breaking changes, abort releases with insufficient test coverage, and generate change logs from commit messages. Kent spends a few minutes sharing some use cases for Semantic Release.
- We're going to talk about automating releases a little bit…but before we get too far into that…I want to talk about why…you would ever want to automate releases.…So, even earlier right after I ran npm publish,…I just realized that I forgot to run the build.…Luckily I'd run the build like earlier…so it wasn't that big of a deal…but if you had like a fresh clone of this,…you deleted the dist or something…and you run npm publish,…you're going to be publishing nothing…and then you'll have to do npm deprecate 1.0.1…or whatever or it would actually be…firstname.lastname@example.org,…say I think the command line flag is M…and like I am not smart…or like, you know,…it would be so embarrassing…and then you'd give everybody's npm console…when they install your package deprecation warning…and like it's really frustrating.…
So, the fact of the matter is there a lot…of manual steps associated with releasing a package,…and that's why we want to automate things.…And so, like there's actually even more things…that we haven't covered that you probably want to do,…
