NPM Auto Version
npm downloads
This script is used to automatically generate new NPM versions based on Git tags when publishing.


Recommended contents of your package.json:
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "scripts": {
        "prepublish": "npm-auto-version",
        "postpublish": "git push origin --tags"

This will (under the hood) do the following when you run npm publish:
- Get the MAJOR.MINOR version from your package.json version field (call them M and N respectively) - Get the list of git tags that match M.N.* - Use semver to generate the next appropriate patch value M.N.P - Update the package.json version field with M.N.P - Generate a new git tag in the NPM syntax: vM.N.P - Publish the package to NPM (via npm publish) - Push the tags to your git origin


This script requires:
- Node 0.12+ - Git client and grep installed in $PATH - Shell that supports pipe |
