assets

Can be an Array or a single entry. Each entry can be either:
  • a glob
  • or an Object with a path property containing a glob.

Each entry in the assets Array is globbed individually. A glob can be a String ("dist/**/*.js" or "dist/mylib.js") or an Array of Strings that will be globbed together (["dist/**", "!**/*.css"]).
If a directory is configured, all the files under this directory and its children will be included.
If a file has a match in .gitignore it will always be excluded.
assets examples
'dist/*.js': include all js files in the dist directory, but not in its sub-directories.
'dist/**/*.js': include all js files in the dist directory and its sub-directories.
[['dist', '!**/*.css']]: include all files in the dist directory and its sub-directories excluding the css files.
[['dist', '!**/*.css'], 'package.json']: include package.json and all files in the dist directory and its sub-directories excluding the css files.
[['dist/**/*.{js,css}', '!**/*.min.*']]: include all js and css files in the dist directory and its sub-directories excluding the minified version.

Usage

Options can be set within the plugin definition in the Semantic-release configuration file:
{
  "release": {
    "prepare": [
      "@semantic-release/npm",
      {
        "path": "semantic-release-git-branches",
        "assets": ["package.json", "dist/**/*.{js|css}", "docs"],
        "message": "chore(release): ${nextRelease.version} [skip ci]\n\n${nextRelease.notes}"
      }
    ],
    "publish": ["@semantic-release/github"]
  }
}

When using with the changelog or npm plugins:
  • The changelog plugin must be called first in order to update the changelog file so the gitflow and npm plugin can include it in the release.
  • The npm plugin must be called second in order to update the package.json file so the gitflow plugin can include it in the release commit.

To use with the changelog and npm plugins:
{
  "release": {
    "verifyConditions": ["@semantic-release/changelog", "@semantic-release/npm", "semantic-release-git-branches"],
    "prepare": ["@semantic-release/changelog", "@semantic-release/npm", "semantic-release-git-branches"]
  }
}
