Package description

What is semver-diff?

The semver-diff npm package is a utility for comparing two semantic version numbers and determining the type of version difference between them. It can identify whether the change is a major, minor, patch, pre-release, or build difference.

What are semver-diff's main functionalities?

Version difference identification

This feature allows you to compare two semantic version numbers and determine the type of change. The code sample demonstrates how to use semver-diff to compare versions '1.0.0' and '2.0.0', which would log 'major' as the type of version difference.

"use strict";
const semverDiff = require('semver-diff');

const diffType = semverDiff('1.0.0', '2.0.0');
console.log(diffType); // 'major'"
