Enabling npm(recommended) or git auto update

cdnjs automatically updates libraries that are known to be hosted on npm or git repo, e.g., function-plot. npm auto-update relies on each release and git auto-update relies on the tags in git repo. This auto-update script runs every hour, but the update result won't be committed until one of our maintainers audit the updates, because many libs will change the naming or directory structure during different versions, and we may need to minify the lib without pre-minified dist files, so it'll be reasonable to delay for at most 12 hours, if you think there is a lib didn't been updated, please wait at least 12 hours for the process to audit it.

To add git auto-update config to a library, update the package.json with configuration details and submit your pull request. An example configuration:

  "autoupdate": {
    "source": "git",
    "target": "git://github.com/jashkenas/underscore.git",
    "fileMap": [
      {
        "basePath": "",
        "files": [
          "underscore-min.js",
          "underscore-min.map",
          "underscore.js"
        ]
      }
    ]
  }

To add an npm hook to a library, update the package.json with configuration details and submit your pull request. An example configuration:

  "npmName": "function-plot",
  "npmFileMap": [
    {
      "basePath": "dist",
      "files": [
        "**/*"
      ]
    }
  ]
  • Please don't touch version number in this step, it'll be automatically updated

  • npmName should map to the name of the library on npm

  • npmFileMap is a list of files to take from the npm tarball and host on cdnjs

  • basePath will be ignored when copying over to the CDN

  • files is a pattern matcher allowing selection of multiple files, see node-glob

    • you can use !(...) to exclude the files which are not needed. For example, if you want to exclude *.flow and *.scss, you can use:
    "files": [
      "**/!(*.+(flow|scss))"  //To fetch all files except *.flow and *.scss
    ]

The above example looks in the tarball whose structure might look like this:

|__dist
| |__function-plot.js
|__bower.json
|__index.js
|__site.js
|__package.json
|__README.md
|__lib
| |__...
|__node_modules
| |__...
|__sandbox
| |__...

The auto-update process will look for dist inside the named tarball and copy all the JavaScript file to cdnjs, minus the dist path. The resulting files in cdnjs will be:

|__ajax
  |__libs
    |__function-plot
      |__x.y.z
        |__function-plot.js

...where x.y.z is the version number, extracted from the package.json on npm.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
