RequireJS dist

This directory contains the tools that are used to build distributions of RequireJS and its web site.

When doing a release, do the following:

  • Update files to the new version number:
    • require.js, both places
    • all plugins, both places
    • docs/ check for nested paths too, add new release section
    • pre.html
    • post.html
  • Update version in x.js in the r.js project if necessary.
  • Check in changes to r.js project.
  • Check version of cs plugin, update download.html if necessary.
  • Check version of jQuery in the jQuery sample project, update the download.html if necessary.
    • Upload change in jQuery project to website even before the current release.
  • Commit/push changes
  • Commit changes to:
    • require-cs: make a new tag if cs.js changed since last release.
    • require-jquery
    • jqueryui-amd: update the downloadable content if necessary.
  • Update the requirejs-npm directory

    • Update version in package.json
    • Modify bin/r.js to add: #!/usr/bin/env node
    • npm uninstall -g requirejs
    • npm install . -g
    • r.js -v
    • node (then use repl to do require("requirejs"))
    • Try a local install.
    • npm publish (in the requirejs-npm/requirejs directory)
  • Tag the requirejs and r.js trees:

    • git tag -am "Release 0.0.0" 0.0.0
    • git push --tags

Now pull down the tagged version to do a distribution, do this in git/ directory:

  • rm -rf ./requirejs-dist ./requirejs-build
  • git clone git:// requirejs-dist
  • cd requirejs-dist
  • git checkout 0.0.0
  • cd dist

Run the distribution tasks.

To generate a build

  • ./ 0.0.0

To generate the web site:

  • node dist-site.js
  • cd dist-site
  • zip -r ./*
  • mv ../../../requirejs-build/

Be sure the links for the CoffeeScript and jQuery Sample project work.

When done, reset versions to:

  • 0.0.0+ in require.js
  • X.X.X in pre.html
