A command line tool that helps you make faster npm releases.

What it does:

  • pushes commits and tags to origin
  • runs npm publish


npm install -g gilbox-cut-release


Usage: gilbox-cut-release [<newversion> | patch | minor | major | prepatch | preminor | premajor | prerelease]


    --yes, -y       Don't confirm, just release right away. The new version must be supplied.

                    that will be replaced with the resulting version number
