TypeError: Invalid Version: node.0.0

See original GitHub issue


This project looks super cool & i’m really keen to try it but i’m getting errors. Here’s what I did (as per readme):

npm i -g travis-watch

cd /path/to/proj
travis watch .

And i get an error:

⠸ Loading jobs/usr/local/lib/node_modules/travis-watch/node_modules/semver/semver.js:293
    throw new TypeError('Invalid Version: ' + version);

The project in question is Stayck which i’m working on at the moment.

I assume TW is trying to read version from package.json - this is present in my package.json:

  "name": "statyck",
  "version": "1.2.0",
  "description": "A super simple, markdown-based, static blog generator",
  "main": "dist/bin.js",
  "bin": {
    "statyck": "dist/bin.js"
  "config": {
    "force": true
  "ava": {
    "require": [
    "babel": "inherit"
  "scripts": {

My apologies if i am doing something stupid - I just can’t see what 😃.

More than happy to test/investigate/send a PR - is this something you can shortcut at all for me please?

Confirm! This is fixed (and travis-watch is awesome - thank you @juliangruber 😃)

Ah ha! I see, now you point that out it’s obvious 😃.

That’d be awesome. thanks. I seem to have a talent for doing things in a slightly awkward way 😃.
