Release Process

Once your pull request has been merged to master:

  1. Make sure you have the latest changes by running git pull on the master branch.

  2. (Optional) Check that your changes are reflected in the lib/react-bootstrap-datetimepicker.js file by running npm run build-npm and checking the file manually from the lib folder.

  3. When you're happy with your changes, run on your console:

    npm run patch-release


    npm run minor-release


    npm run major-release

Please respect semantic versioning!

If the release command fails, then please read what the release command does (see package.json), and figure out which step of the process went wrong, so that you can re-try just that bit. If you get stuck, ping #ex-myob-widgets for help!

Local linking to another project

  1. Run npm run build-npm from the react-bootstrap-datetimepicker console.
  2. In your other project's package.json, Use "@1stquad/react-bootstrap-datetimepicker: "#{local_path}/react-bootstrap-datetimepicker" instead of "@1stquad/react-bootstrap-datetimepicker": "1.0.5" in the dependency list.
  3. Run npm install @1stquad/react-bootstrap-datetimepicker from the same folder level as the package.json.

Update Warning

Starting from 0.0.6, the 3 github repositories react-bootstrap-datetimepicker, react-bootstrap-datetimepicker-npm and react-bootstrap-datetimepicker-bower are merged in a single one. The build process changed but the API is the same. However now the package exports DateTimeField directly, no need to do :

var DateTimeField = require('react-bootstrap-datetimepicker').DateTimeField;

instead use :

var DateTimeField = require('react-bootstrap-datetimepicker');


There is still plenty of features missing compared to the original date time picker, hence contributions would be highly appreciated.
