CRANK

a tool to update version number and changelog, for npm module development

usage

crank version {part}

increments version in package.json {part} is major, minor, or patch. defaults to patch

crank changelog {file}

updates changelog. {file} defaults to Changelog.md

intentions

node modules
Used to manage node modules. (Assumes package.json, etc.)
move into the future
Interface designed primarily to increment/update package metadata.
for build systems
Intended to use in a build system (gmake, ant, phing, etc). Expects to be intermixed with other commands. (This lets it focus on what it does well -- and not try to do everything.)
semantic versioning
By default, makes it easy to manage packages that use semantic versioning.
read-only
Doesn't commit to the SCM. (See "not try to do everything" above.)
config file (optional)
Options given mainly by config file (instead of commandline arguments). This makes it easier to create re-usable "recipes". (For example, using a config file means that it can be commited to the SCM.)

assumptions

single change ID
Change ID ("revision", "commit", etc) of target diretory applies homogeneously to all files/subdirectories in the target.
clean target
No modified files in the target directory.
CWD in module root
Generally expected to be run in same directory as package.json.
