    semantic-release plugin to generate changelog content with conventional-changelog

    Build Status npm latest version npm next version

    Step Description
    generateNotes Generate release notes for the commits added since the last release with conventional-changelog.

    Install

    $ npm install @semantic-release/release-notes-generator -D

    Usage

    The plugin can be configured in the semantic-release configuration file:

    {
      "plugins": [
        ["@semantic-release/commit-analyzer", {
          "preset": "angular",
          "parserOpts": {
            "noteKeywords": ["BREAKING CHANGE", "BREAKING CHANGES", "BREAKING"]
          }
        }],
        ["@semantic-release/release-notes-generator", {
          "preset": "angular",
          "parserOpts": {
            "noteKeywords": ["BREAKING CHANGE", "BREAKING CHANGES", "BREAKING"]
          },
          "writerOpts": {
            "commitsSort": ["subject", "scope"]
          }
        }]
      ]
    }

    With this example:

    • the commits that contains BREAKING CHANGE, BREAKING CHANGES or BREAKING in their body will be considered breaking changes (by default the angular preset checks only for BREAKING CHANGE and BREAKING CHANGES)
    • the commits will be sorted in the changelog by subject then scope (by default the angular preset sort the commits in the changelog by scope then subject)

    presetConfig Additional configuration passed to the conventional-changelog preset. Used for example with conventional-changelog-conventionalcommits. -

    Notes: in order to use a preset it must be installed (for example to use the eslint preset you must install it with npm install conventional-changelog-eslint -D)

    Note: config will be overwritten by the values of preset. You should use either preset or config, but not both.

    Note: Individual properties of parserOpts and writerOpts will override ones loaded with an explicitly set preset or config. If preset or config are not set, only the properties set in parserOpts and writerOpts will be used.

    Note: For presets that expects a configuration object, such as conventionalcommits, the presetConfig option must be set.
