Using git flow to release new version
Using git flow to release a new version of software enables developers to easily switch between releases to locate bugs and/or introduce new features.
In this example we are releasing version 1.1.4.
NOTE TO SELF: Remember to bump the version in src/packages.json
# debian/ubuntu only apt-get install git-flow # checkout the development branch git checkout develop # first time only, accept defaults git flow init # start the release process # note the releases-1.1.4 bit, this should be 1.1.4 only but I'm following the pattern of Etherpad Lite git flow release start 1.1.4 # publish the release to a new release branch git flow release publish 1.1.4
Check everything fully one last time IE packages.json and let travis run it’s tests..
git flow release finish 1.2.4 git push origin master --tags
