React native version upper
Increase major, minor or patch part of the version and build number in your app in package.json and in ios and android projects with one command.
node ./node_modules/react-native-version-up/index.js --patch -m 'commit message'

With this script you can:
  • Increase major, minor or patch part in the version.
  • Make a git commit with version changes.
  • Make a git tag with new version.


> yarn run version:up -- --patch
$ node ./node_modules/react-native-version-up/index.js "--patch"

I'm going to increase the version in:
  - package.json (./package.json);
  - ios project (./ios/happinesstracker/Info.plist);
  - android project (./android/app/build.gradle).

The version will be changed:
  - from: 0.2.2 (9);
  - to:   0.2.3 (10).

Use "0.2.3" as the next version? [y/n] y

yarn add react-native-version-up

Or via npm:
npm install react-native-version-up --save


1. Add command in the section scripts in the package.json
  "name": "your-project-name",
  "scripts": {
    "version:up": "node ./node_modules/react-native-version-up/index.js"

2. Make sure you have defined the version
  "name": "your-project-name",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "scripts": {
    "version:up": "node ./node_modules/react-native-version-up/index.js"

3. Commit the package.json (optional)
git add package.json
git commit -m 'version:up command added'

4. Increase version when needed
yarn version:up --major

Or via npm:
npm run version:up -- --major


You can pass option name and value with following syntax (remember to put -- before options if you are using npm, with yarn this is not needed):
