What would you like to do?
Small shell script to create GitHub releases from the command line
#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -e
[ -z "$DEBUG" ] || set -x;
usage() {
echo "$0 <repo> <tag> [<release name>] [-- <asset>...]" >&2;
}
if [ "$1" = "-h" -o "$1" = "--help" ]; then
usage
cat >&2 <<EOS
Pass the following arguments:
* \`<repo>\`: ":user/:name" of the repository. For example, "foca/mpp".
* \`<tag>\`: Name of the tag for this release. For example, "v1.0.0".
* \`<release name>\`: Optional suffix for the release name.
You can pass a list of files to upload as release assets by giving them after a
\`--\` argument.
If you supply text on \`STDIN\` it will be used as the release notes.
EXAMPLES:
$ $0 foca/mpp v1.0.0 -- pkg/*.tar.gz
Creates a release named "mpp v1.0.0" and adds any tar.gz file in
\`./pkg\` as an asset.
$ $0 foca/mpp v1.0.1 "Bugfixes" -- pkg/*.tar.gz < notes.md
Creates a release named "mpp v1.0.1: Bugfixes", adds any tar.gz
file in \`./pkg\` as an asset, and uses the contents of \`notes.md\`
as the release notes.
NOTE:
This uses your \`.netrc\` file to authenticate with GitHub. In order to run the
script, make sure you have **both** \`api.github.com\` and \`upload.github.com\` in
this file. For example:
machine api.github.com
login foca
password <an access token>
machine upload.github.com
login foca
password <an access token>
Generate this access token at https://github.com/settings/tokens and make sure
it has access to the \`"repo"\` scope.
