npm version [<newversion> | major | minor | patch | premajor | preminor | prepatch | prerelease]
Run this in a package directory to bump the version and write the new
data back to
package.json and, if present,
newversion argument should be a valid semver string, or a
valid second argument to semver.inc (one of "patch", "minor", "major",
"prepatch", "preminor", "premajor", "prerelease"). In the second case,
the existing version will be incremented by 1 in the specified field.
If run in a git repo, it will also create a version commit and tag, and fail if the repo is not clean.
If supplied with
-m) config option, npm will
use it as a commit message when creating a version commit. If the
message config contains
%s then that will be replaced with the
resulting version number. For example:
npm version patch -m "Upgrade to %s for reasons"
sign-git-tag config is set, then the tag will be signed using
-s flag to git. Note that you must have a default GPG key set up
in your git config for this to work properly. For example:
$ npm config set sign-git-tag true $ npm version patch You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for user: "isaacs (http://blog.izs.me/) <email@example.com>" 2048-bit RSA key, ID 6C481CF6, created 2010-08-31 Enter passphrase:
