To publish a new version, just:

yarn version
npm publish --access public

You will be prompted for a new version number, the package will be rebuilt, and the tag pushed to git before publishing to npm. The second step is required until #1694 is resolved.

If you find any bugs or have a feature request, please open an issue on github!
