npm run changelog

Packaging the component

This project uses ng-packagr to create a package meeting the Angular Package Format specification.


npm run build-package

creates a package in the ./dist directory, which can be then published in the npm registry.

Testing the package before releasing

After generating the package, create a symlink to the ckeditor5-angular/dist package directory to test it in another (third–party) Angular project:

ln -s /path/to/ckeditor5-angular/dist node_modules/\@ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular

You may also need the following configuration in angular.json to include the symlinked component package without errors:

	"project-name": {
		"architect": {
			"build": {
				"options": {
					"preserveSymlinks": true

Publishing the package

To publish the new package in the npm registry, run:

npm run release
