Zendesk to Release Node Publisher

Node publisher is designed to help developers to build Node package properly
07 December 2018   606

Zendesk developed node publisher, a tool for building Node.js packages with one command.

Often when building a package, developers forget one step or another, test the wrong version, or forget to run tests at all. As a result, packs with errors are added to the Node.js repository. It is noted that node-publisher will build packages automatically, without missing a single step. This allows, among other things, correct dependency management.

Site-publisher combines five consecutive steps:

  1. Preparation: check against the working tree and the current version N.
  2. Testing: running a code analyzer and tests.
  3. Build (optional): code verification with Babel.
  4. Publication.
  5. Post publication: creating a change log.

node-publisher works with several project elements. In particular, it uses a specific git workflow, checks for the presence of a .nvmrc file, and specifies the script names in package.json. When launched, a .release.yml file is created in the project root folder. In this case, the tool will perform only those steps and commands that are present in the configuration file:

rollback: true

prepare:
  - git diff-index --quiet HEAD --
  - git checkout master
  - git pull --rebase
  - '[[ -f .nvmrc ]] && ./node_modules/.bin/check-node-version --node $(cat .nvmrc)'
  - yarn install

test:
  - yarn travis

build:
  - yarn build
  - git diff --staged --quiet || git commit -am "Update build file"

after_publish:
  - git push --follow-tags origin master:master

changelog:
  - ./node_modules/.bin/offline-github-changelog > CHANGELOG.md
  - git add CHANGELOG.md
  - git commit --allow-empty -m "Update changelog"
  - git push origin master:master

Google has released another update Chrome.

  • The Android application has Lite pages mode for optimizing pages, speeding up their loading and reducing traffic, as well as a new download manager.
  • Settings for account management and synchronization are collected in a separate section - Sync and Google services.
  • Improved video mode “picture in picture”. A floating window can now make web applications (PWA): chat rooms, instant messengers, video conferencing. And added the button "Skip advertising".
  • It is forbidden to load external resources in scripts provided by extensions. Extension developers now need to use background handlers.

The previous version was released in late January.
