Creating a new release

  1. Bump the version number in package.json and src/linter.ts
  2. Add release notes in
    • Use ./scripts/generate-changelog.js (after building it with tsc -p scripts) to generate the changelog diff. This script expects a personal access token to exist at ~/github_token.txt with "repo" permissions.
  3. Commit with message Prepare release <version>
  4. Push your branch to GitHub and make a PR
  5. Once your PR is merged, wait for the tests to pass on CircleCI for develop
  6. Create a "Release" on GitHub with the proper tag version and notes from the changelog.
    • The tag should be identical to the version in package.json
  7. Run yarn run publish:local
