Managing Packages

This repository uses monorepo to manage WordPress modules and publish them with lerna as packages to npm. This enforces certain steps in the workflow which are described in details in packages documentation.

Maintaining dozens of npm packages is difficult—it can be tough to keep track of changes. That’s why we use files for each package to simplify the release process. As a contributor, you should add an entry to the aforementioned file each time you contribute adding production code as described in Maintaining Changelogs section.

Publishing WordPress packages to npm is automated by synchronizing it with the bi-weekly Gutenberg plugin RC1 release. You can learn more about this process and other ways to publish new versions of npm packages in the Gutenberg Release Process document.
