I think I am a software developer because I am lazy.
The second or third time I have to perform the same exact task, I find myself saying, “Ugh, can’t I tell the computer how to do it?”
So imagine my reaction when our team’s deployment process started looking like this:
npm run buildto create the minified packages
git commit -am "Create Distribution" && git push
- Navigate to GitHub
- Create a new release
I was thinking steps 1–3 are easy enough to put in a shell script and steps 4–5 are probably scriptable, but is that all? What else needs to be done?
- The version in
package.jsonwas never getting updated and it would be nice to have that in synch with the GitHub release.
- Can this script be run after the CI build without having to task a human to manually run it?
