Coho is a script that automates the process for building releases of the Apache Cordova source code.


  • Must be run on a Mac with Lion (or later) installed
  • Have node installed (v 6.6+)
  • Must have git setup
  • Install gpg
    • Create a keypair if you don't have one already that can be used to sign the release artifact.


  • ./coho all 2.2.0 2.1.0

    where 'all' is the commands to run, '2.2.0' is the current version to release, and '2.1.0' is the previous version that will be diff'ed to create a changelog using git history. Specifying the previous version is optional, if you omit it a changelog will not be generated. Running coho will do a git checkout of the tagged specified release version (ie, '2.2.0'). Running coho will also create the temp/release/src directory which is where the generated artifact will be when coho completes.

    Other commands to run:

    ./coho build 2.2.0 2.1.0 builds the release without zipping + signing.

    ./coho sign 2.2.0 2.1.0 will take a built release and zip + sign it. Must run build before running sign.

  • make OR npm test

    runs coho all 2.2.0 2.1.0 and the unit tests to verify the packaging of the artifact. You may need to run npm install to install coffee-script and nodeunit if you wish to run this. You will probably want to change the release version 'VERSION' and the previous version 'OLDVER' variables at the top of the test/ script from the default values of '2.2.0' and '2.1.0' respectively.
