    updater-example NPM version NPM downloads

    This is an example updater for the update library, to provide a basic demonstration of how updaters work.

    What is "Update"?

    Update is a new, open-source developer framework for automating updates of any kind to code projects. For more information:


    Install update

    If you haven't already installed update globally, you can do that now with the following command:

    $ npm i -g update

    Install updater-example

    Then install this module:

    $ npm i -g update-example


    Add a file named example.txt to the current working directory, then run the updater with the following command:

    $ update example

    What will happen?

    This updater will only modify a file named example.txt in the current working directory. By default it just adds the string foo.

    Try the following steps to get familiarized with how update works:

    • run $ update example to execute the default task, which will append the string foo to the file's contents.
    • run $ update example:foo to execute the foo task, appending the string foo to the file's contents
    • run $ update example:bar to execute the bar task, appending the string bar to the file's contents
    • run $ update to execute the default task on the abc (sub-)updater, appending the string abc:default to the file's contents
    • run $ update to execute the xyz task on the abc (sub-)updater, appending the string abc:xyz to the file's contents

    See the code for more details.
