goreleaser announce

Announces a previously prepared release


If you have a previously prepared release with goreleaser release --prepare or goreleaser release --split and published it with goreleaser publish, you can use this command to announce it.

The idea is to prepare a release without publishing anything, assert the artifacts are correct (either automatically or not), publish it, and then, finally, announce it to your users.

Environment variables will be re-evaluated here, so make sure they are available to the announce command as well.

On the other hand, the GoReleaser configuration file will not be parsed again, which means you might need to specify the dist directory path if it is different than the default.
