Github release CLI is a tool primarily created to circumvent the Travis issue that doesn't allow complex bodies to be used in releases.
The github-travis-releaser takes enviroment variables from travis and parses them so that you don't have to.
The only variables you need to take into concideration are:
|GITHUB_OAUTH_TOKEN||NO||The oath token from github, needed to get the access to create the release|
|BODY||YES||The body of the release, can be markdown. It's recomended to use
|FILES||YES||The path to the file(s) that should be uploaded. Wildcards can be used (e.g.
|RELEASE_NAME||YES||The name (title) of the release. If nothing is set, it will be the same as the tag name|
Command line flags:
|-draft||Set the release as a draft|
|-prerelease||Set if the the release is identified as non-production ready|
|-verbose||Print logging statements|
