Safely update your dependencies using TravisCI cron jobs

NPM

Build status semantic-release js-standard-style

Install

Requires Node version 4 or above.

npm install --save-dev next-update-travis

This will create file next-update-travis.sh you can tweak. If you need to reinstall (because new version of next-update-travis is available), just remove the file and install again

rm next-update-travis.sh
npm i next-update-travis

It is highly recommended to set up next-update-travis after enabling semantic release on Travis CI.

Use

Take any Node project and install next-update-travis as a dev dependency. This will create a shell script file next-update-travis.sh in the project. Add this script to your .travis.yml script step.

script:
  - ./next-update-travis.sh
  - npm test

Then enable a cron job on Travis. next-update-travis.sh skips running its command automatically for non-cron jobs.

Travis CI cron job

That's it.

Important

If there are dependencies that the next-update-travis.sh could safely upgrade, it will commit and push the change back to GitHub using GH_TOKEN for authentication. The simplest way to set this token is by using semantic-release, see it's setup.

Cron job will run, and if dependencies can be successfully upgraded, the update will be pushed (triggering normal Travis build). It will look something like this in the build history

Two successful upgrades

Options

You can tweak which updates are checked by editing next-update-travis.sh script. Under the hood it uses next-update to check dependencies. For example, to only consider patches (fixes) you can modify the shell command to be

next-update --allow patch

FAQ

<summary>Why do you hate greenkeeper.io?</summary>
I ♥️ Greenkeeper! And I use semantic-release on every single one of my NPM packages. But Greenkeeper is too scared to merge suggested dependency updates, creating so many pull requests ... I want less noise and fully automated solution; with options to control which modules are tested, how and the global update stats, I feel we finally can take the human out of the loop.
<summary>What if my tests are not comprehensive enough to feel safe?</summary>
You can control which modules are checked or skipped
<summary>"npm test" is not my testing command</summary>
You can use a different command and even a custom command per module, see docs
<summary>I only want to test and update to dependencies that others have successfully tested</summary>
next-update uses public anonymous statistics to show success percentage for each specific update. When bahmutov/next-update#107 is implemented it will be possible to automatically upgrade only the packages that were successfully upgraded by others 100% of the time for example.
<summary>Help, it updated dependencies and published new broken version!</summary>
Hmm, next-update-travis commits its change with chore(deps): ... message, which should NOT publish new NPM version according to semantic versioning convention. Well, the beauty of Git is that you can always roll back the commit and then blacklist the specific modules that are causing problems.
