greenkeeper bot commented Apr 12, 2017

Let’s get started with automated dependency management for feathers-localstorage 💪

This pull request updates all your dependencies to their latest version. Having them all up to date really is the best starting point. I will look out for further dependency updates and make sure to handle them in isolation and in real-time, as soon as you merge this pull request.

I won’t start sending you further updates, unless you have merged this very pull request.

🏷 How to check the status of this repository There is a badge added to your README, indicating the status of this repository.

This is how your badge looks like 👉 Greenkeeper badge

👩‍💻 How to update this pull request
# change into your repository’s directory
git fetch
git checkout greenkeeper/initial
npm install-test
# adapt your code, so it’s working again
git commit -m 'chore: adapt code to updated dependencies'
git push origin greenkeeper/initial
🙈 How to ignore certain dependencies

In case you can not, or do not want to update a certain dependency right now, you can of course just change the package.json file back to your liking.

Add a greenkeeper.ignore field to your package.json, containing a list of dependencies you don’t want to update right now.

// package.json
  "greenkeeper": {
    "ignore": [
How the updates will look like

As soon as you merge this pull request I’ll create a branch for every dependency update, with the new version applied. The branch creation should trigger your testing services to check the new version. Using the results of these tests I’ll try to open meaningful and helpful pull requests and issues, so your dependencies remain working and up-to-date.

-  "underscore": "^1.6.0"
+  "underscore": "^1.7.0"

In the above example you can see an in-range update. 1.7.0 is included in the old ^1.6.0 range, because of the caret ^ character .
When the test services report success I’ll delete the branch again, because no action needs to be taken – everything is fine.
When there is a failure however, I’ll create an issue so you know about the problem immediately.

This way every single version update of your dependencies will either continue to work with your project, or you’ll get to know of potential problems immediately.

-  "lodash": "^3.0.0"
+  "lodash": "^4.0.0"

In this example the new version 4.0.0 is not included in the old ^3.0.0 range.
For version updates like these – let’s call them “out of range” updates – you’ll receive a pull request.

Now you no longer need to check for exciting new versions by hand – I’ll just let you know automatically.
And the pull request will not only serve as a reminder to update. In case it passes your decent test suite that’s a strong reason to merge right away :shipit:

💁‍♂️ Not sure how things are going to work exactly?

There is a collection of frequently asked questions and of course you may always ask my humans.

Good luck with your project and see you soon
