A CLI toolbelt to streamline local development cycles by using various gitzone utilities.


To install the tool, you need to have Node.js and npm installed on your machine. Once you have those set up, you can install the CLI tool globally using the following command:

npm install -g

This will add the gitzone or gzone command to your PATH, allowing you to use the tool from any directory.


The gitzone CLI is designed to streamline various aspects of the local development cycle, including project setup, maintenance, and deployment. Below, we'll go through several scenarios that demonstrate the capabilities of gitzone.

Getting Started

To start using gitzone, you need to initialize a new project or use it with an existing one. This section will guide you through the initial setup and provide examples of the core commands.

Initialize a New Project

gitzone can create several types of projects, including standard npm modules, websites using LitElement, and custom web components. To create a new project, you can use the following command:

gitzone template [templatename]

Replace [templatename] with one of the following:

  • npm: A standard npm module with TypeScript support, testing, and CI/CD setup.
  • website: A LitElement-based website with e2e testing, bundling, and service worker support.
  • element: A LitElement standard setup for creating web components.

Example of starting a new npm project:

  1. Open your terminal and navigate to the directory where you want to create your project.
  2. Execute the following command:
    gitzone template npm
  3. Follow the interactive prompts to set up your project. You will be asked to provide information such as the project name, description, GitHub repository, etc.

Committing Changes

To standardize commit messages and increment versions based on change types (fix, feat, breaking change):

gitzone commit

This command will prompt you with a series of questions to help construct a standardized commit message and create a new commit.

Deprecating a Package

To deprecate an old package in favor of a new one:

gitzone deprecate

This command will prompt you for the old and new package names and will automatically deprecate the old package on npm.

Opening CI/CD Settings

Quickly open the CI/CD settings page of your project repository:

gitzone open ci

Example Commands

Project Setup and Initialization

Let's go through how to scaffold a new web component project:

  1. Navigate to your desired directory.
  2. Run the following command:
    gitzone template element
  3. Follow the prompts to set up your web component project.

Managing Project Lifecycle

Commands to manage your project's lifecycle:

  • Commit Changes:
    gitzone commit
  • Deprecate a Package:
    gitzone deprecate
  • Format Project Files:
    gitzone format
  • Regenerate Readme:
    gitzone readme
  • Update Local Repositories:
    gitzone update

Advanced Scenarios


To ensure consistent formatting using Prettier:

gitzone format
Building the Project

To build your project as defined in your package.json:

npm run build
Git and Version Control

Check the current project version:

gitzone -v

To synchronize local repositories with remotes:

gitzone update
Metadata and Configuration

To initialize or update metadata:

gitzone meta init

Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD)

Running Tests

To execute tests defined in your package.json:

npm test

Building Documentation

Generate documentation:

npm run buildDocs

Troubleshooting and Debugging

Detailed Logs

Enable detailed logging for troubleshooting:

gitzone --loglevel=debug

Cleaning Up

To clean up project artifacts:

gitzone clean


The gitzone CLI tool provides a comprehensive suite of commands that streamline project setup, lifecycle management, and deployment, which are indispensable for modern development workflows. By familiarizing yourself with the different commands, you can maximize your productivity and focus on what really matters—writing code. Whether you are starting a new project, maintaining an existing one, or deploying your work, gitzone is your toolbelt for efficient development cycles.
