This is a
playground to test code. It runs a full
Node.js environment and already has all of
npm’s 1,000,000+ packages pre-installed, including
renovate with all
npm packages installed. Try it out:
renovate lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

Renovate was released in 2017 and already is widely used in the developer community, including:
The easiest way to use Renovate if you are hosted on GitHub.com or GitLab.com is to install the hosted Renovate app. On Azure DevOps you can install Renovate as an extension from the marketplace.
For GitLab, log into app.renovatebot.com/dashboard for a convenient way to add Renovate Bot to your project. Currently the GitLab app is free for both public and private repositories. More details on the GitLab App installation.
For Azure DevOps, visit the Visual Studio Marketplace and install the Renovate Me extension in your organisation. From there you can create a pipeline with the
RenovateMe task. More details on how to configure the pipeline. Note: This extension is created and maintained personally by a Renovate developer/user so support requests relating to the extension itself cannot be answered directly in the main Renovate repository. Alternatively, you can create custom pipeline with with a
yml definition that will trigger
npx renovate. More details on how to configure the pipeline.
Visit https://docs.renovatebot.com/ for documentation, and in particular https://docs.renovatebot.com/configuration-options/ for a list of configuration options.
You can also raise an issue in https://github.com/renovatebot/config-help if you'd like to get your config reviewed or ask any questions.
If you are not on github.com or gitlab.com, or you prefer to run your own instance of Renovate then you have several options:
renovateCLI tool from npmjs, run it on a schedule (e.g. using cron)
renovate/renovateDocker Hub image (same content/versions as the CLI tool), run it on a schedule
renovate/renovate:slimDocker Hub image if you only use package managers that don't need third party binaries (e.g. JS, Docker, Nuget, pip)
If you would like to contribute to Renovate or get a local copy running for some other reason, please see the instructions in .github/contributing.md.
If you discover any important bug with Renovate that may pose a security problem, please disclose it confidentially to email@example.com first, so that it can be assessed and hopefully fixed prior to being exploited. Please do not raise GitHub issues for security-related doubts or problems.
