Auto NPM

Automatically update NPM packages when making commits.

When you make a commit that changes the version in package.json it'll tag and publish to NPM, or if you include [publish] in the commit subject it'll increment the patch number then tag and publish.


npm install -g auto_npm


auto_npm <command> [options]


  • enable Enables Auto NPM in the current repo
  • disable Disables Auto NPM in the current repo
  • update Updates the NPM package in the current repo and creates a Git tag for it


  • --force, -f Force Auto NPM to rewrite any conflicting Git hooks
  • --help, -h Display the help dialog


  • There hasn't been much success using git commit -a but but commit -m works most of the time.
npm loves you
