- Create a tag for your release
$git tag -a <TagName> -m “<message>”
(E.g $git tag -a v1.2.0 -m “version v1.2.0”)
- Push the tag to the repository
$git push <origin/remote> <TagName>
(E.g $git push upstream v1.2.0)
Notes: Now a new tag/release should appear in the “Release” feature of the GitHub page in this repository. Also, you are able to add/edit the release notes via the GitHub interface.
If you are working on a fork project and would like to push the tag to the remote/upstream repository ensure/fix your locally git setup addressed as the following example.
$git remote remove upstream ## To remove the upstream setup
$git remote add upstream firstname.lastname@example.org:<repo>/myapp.git ## To add the upstream setup
- Publish the new tag of your project
Run the command “$npm publish” in the root directory of your application. Ensure that you are in the master branch where the tag/release was created.
