Usage

const semanticRelease = require('semantic-release');
const {WritableStreamBuffer} = require('stream-buffers');

const stdoutBuffer = WritableStreamBuffer();
const stderrBuffer = WritableStreamBuffer();

try {
  const result = await semanticRelease({
    // Core options
    branch: 'master',
    repositoryUrl: 'https://github.com/me/my-package.git',
    // Shareable config
    extends: 'my-shareable-config',
    // Plugin options
    githubUrl: 'https://my-ghe.com',
    githubApiPathPrefix: '/api-prefix'
  }, {
    // Run semantic-release from `/path/to/git/repo/root` without having to change local process `cwd` with `process.chdir()`
    cwd: '/path/to/git/repo/root',
    // Pass the variable `MY_ENV_VAR` to semantic-release without having to modify the local `process.env`
    env: {...process.env, MY_ENV_VAR: 'MY_ENV_VAR_VALUE'},
    // Store stdout and stderr to use later instead of writing to `process.stdout` and `process.stderr`
    stdout: stdoutBuffer,
    stderr: stderrBuffer
  });

  if (result) {
    const {lastRelease, commits, nextRelease, releases} = result;

    console.log(`Published ${nextRelease.type} release version ${nextRelease.version} containing ${commits.length} commits.`);

    if (lastRelease.version) {
      console.log(`The last release was "${lastRelease.version}".`);
    }

    for (const release of releases) {
      console.log(`The release was published with plugin "${release.pluginName}".`);
    }
  } else {
    console.log('No release published.');
  }

  // Get stdout and stderr content

API

semanticRelease([options], [config]) => Promise

Run semantic-release and returns a Promise that resolves to a Result object.

options

Type: Object

semantic-release options.

Can be used to set any core option or plugin options.

Each option, will take precedence over options configured in the configuration file and shareable configurations.

config

Type: Object

semantic-release configuration specific for API usage.

cwd

Type: String
Default: process.cwd()

The current working directory to use. It should be configured to the root of the Git repository to release from.

It allows to run semantic-release from a specific path without having to change the local process cwd with process.chdir().

env

Type: Object
Default: process.env

The environment variables to use.

It allows to run semantic-release with specific environment variables without having to modify the local process.env.

stdout

Type: stream.Writable
Default: process.stdout

The writable stream used to log information.

It allows to configure semantic-release to write logs to a specific stream rather than the local process.stdout.

stderr

Type: stream.Writable
Default: process.stderr

The writable stream used to log errors.

It allows to configure semantic-release to write errors to a specific stream rather than the local process.stderr.
