clone a skeleton repo and set up CI build as fast as possible

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import 60 from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/0-60';



CircleCI Coverage Status semantic-release Commitizen friendly npm version

This is my script for creating an npm package from a skeleton project and setting up the CI build as fast as possible. Once you've used this you'll never want to go back to setting up all of that stuff manually.


yarn global add 0-60

Or if you want you can run it with npx:

npx 0-60


Cloning a skeleton repository

0-60 clone <REPO URL>

0-60 will prompt you for the new package name, organization, etc:

$ 0-60 clone https://github.com/jedwards1211/es2015-library-skeleton.git
? Destination directory: cool-project

Pick from preset list of skeleton repos

You don't have to type the repository URL every time. Instead you can configure a preset list of repositories to pick from by adding them to ~/.0-60.json. Then just run 0-60 without arguments, and outside of a repo directory. 0-60 will prompt you to select which skeleton you want from this list.

Example ~/.0-60.json:

  "skeletons": [
$ 0-60
? Skeleton repo: (Use arrow keys)
❯ jedwards1211/es2015-library-skeleton

Preparing for CI build

Running 0-60 inside in your repo directory will:

  • Create the repository on GitHub
  • enable Travis CI (if .travis.yml is present)

Bringing in changes to the skeleton

Just run git pull skeleton master (0-60 keeps the skeleton repository URL in the skeleton remote). I recommend using the CLI in my fork of merge-package.json to automatically fix merge conflicts in package.json. (Install with npm i -g jedwards1211/merge-package.json#cli and then just run merge-package.json in the project directory after pulling.)
