Known Vulnerabilities


This is currently intended to be cloned as a starter template for a new node module. It was created to serve as a utility/backup for my module template experiments and is a bit outdated now.


git clone https://github.com/mdelucchi/originator.git your-module-name

npm scripts

watch - starts file watcher

lint - runs eslint on /src

test - runs tests and formats piped TAP output with tap-spec.

ci - Travis CI integration + zuul multi-framework & browser tests

cover - generates code coverage text-summary report in terminal

report - generates code coverage html report and opens it in browser

coveralls - runs code coverage and sends report to coveralls

zuul - runs browser tests via zuul at http://localhost:9966/__zuul


  • babel - compiler for writing next generation JavaScript

  • babel-eslint - ESLint using Babel as the parser

Travis CI / Sauce Connect Configuration

Sauce Connect - Used to create tunnel allowing Travis CI to utilize Sauce Labs, a browser and mobile testing platform.

If you plan to use Sauce Connect in your new module, be sure to sign up with Sauce Labs if you haven’t already (it’s free for Open Source projects), and get your access key from your account page.

Then you'll want to replace the secured access key in .travis.yml with your own. See the Getting Started guide on Travis for more info on setting this up.

Best bet if you're a new Travis and/or Sauce Labs user is to follow their steps to create a new .travis.yml file.


When you are ready to publish a new version of your module, the following steps can be used:

  1. add and commit your changes via git
  2. npm version patch -m "Ugrade message..."
  3. npm publish

If publish is a success, the postpublish npm script will run git push origin master --follow-tags, pushing up and tagging your code properly.

If you run npm version patch before committing your changes, you'll get a message like npm ERR! Git working directory not clean.. Commit and retry.
