Semantic Release

Once you have added your Project to CFA and set up a Requester and a Responder for that project you can go ahead and configure Semantic Release to use CFA.

Step 1: Configure your CI environment

In order for CFA to run and authenticate correctly you must configure the following environment variables on your CI provider.

Environment Variable

Value

CFA_SECRET

The "Project Secret" found on your Project configuration page

CFA_PROJECT_ID

The "Project ID" found on your Project configuration page

Step 2: Configure Semantic Release

You should configure Semantic Release following the default instructions. Then once it's completely set up you should add @continuous-auth/semantic-release-npm as a dev-dependency to your project and add the following file to the root of your project

.releaserc.json
{
"plugins": [
"@semantic-release/commit-analyzer",
"@semantic-release/release-notes-generator",
"@continuous-auth/semantic-release-npm",
"@semantic-release/github"
]
}

This is identical to the default configuration but with the default npm plugin swapped out for the CFA one.

Step 3: Try trigger a release

Everything should be completely set up now, try pushing a semantic commit to master and see if it releases your module.
