    Changelogify

    A basic changelog manager made to avoid conflicts at git merge.

    Install

    Add the package to your project as a dev dependency:

    npm install -D changelogify
    

    Usage

    changelogify [options]
    
    Options:
        init          Copy default configuration file into package to be overwriten.
                            If the user configuration file is not found, default one will be used.
        add           Write/overwrite the current git branch changelog file 
                            into ./changelogs/unreleased/
        release       Concat changelogs file from ./changelogs/unreleased/,
                            add them into ./CHANGELOG.md and delete them.
    

    If no option is specified, add is used. This can be changed or removed to display the helper above, see defaultCommand in configuration file.

    Example

    These three changelogs

    {
      "message": "feature 1",
      "type": "Added",
      "branch": "7"
    }
    {
      "message": "feature 2",
      "type": "Added"
    }
    {
      "message": "lint",
      "type": "Meta",
      "branch": "8"
    }

    will be concatenated into CHANGELOG.md

    Commands

    Init

    With init, the default configuration is copied in ./changelogs/config.json, where you can overwrite it.

    {
        // changelog types
        "types": [
            "Added",
            "Changed",
            "Deprecated",
            "Removed",
            "Fixed",
            "Security",
            "Meta"
        ],
        // link to git issue. `NUMBER` is current branch number by default
        // if empty, no link will be provided
        "gitIssueTemplate": "[NUMBER](www.example.com/issues/NUMBER)",
        // automatic commit for `add` command
        "autoCommitAdd": true,
        // associated commit message. `NUMBER` is current branch number by default
        "changelogMessageAdd": "Add changelog entry for #NUMBER",
        // automatic commit for `release` command
        "autoCommitRelease": true,
        // associated commit message.
        "changelogMessageRelease": "changelog",
        // default command if none is passed ("", "add", "init" or "release")
        "defaultCommand": "add"
    }

    After updating the library, you should execute init. New settings will be appended, keeping the old ones.

    It also creates the file ./EMPTY_CHANGELOG.md which you can custom. It will be copied to ./CHANGELOG.md the first time you use the release command.

    Add

    The add command ask you to write a changelog entry, choose an entry type and a branch number (optional).

    It will write it in a unique file in ./changelogs/unreleased/.

    $ npx changelogify add
    
    > test_changelog@1.0.0 changelog /home/robin/Documents/wanadev/test_changelog
    > node node_modules/changelogify/index.js "add"
    
    ? What's your changelog entry? Feature 1
    ? Entry type? Added
    ? What's your git branch number? (Optional) 12
    {
        "message": "Feature 1",
        "type": "Added",
        "branch": "12"
    }
    written in /changelogs/unreleased/12-test-changelogify_1.json
    
    Changelog committed, use `git push` to write it remotely

    You can also pass parameters to it.

    $ npx changelogify add --message "Feature 1" --type Added --branch 12
    # or
    $ npx changelogify add -m "Feature 1" -t Added -b 12

    And run it on silent mode.

    $ npx changelogify add -m "Feature 1" -t Added -b 12 -s
    
    > test_changelog@1.0.0 changelog /home/robin/Documents/wanadev/test_changelog
    > node node_modules/changelogify/index.js "add" "-m" "Feature 1" "-t" "Added" "-b" "12" "-s"

    Release

    The release command merge every changelog files from ./changelogs/unreleased/ and add the new content on ./CHANGELOG.md.

    If ./CHANGELOG.md doesn't exist, it is created from ./EMPTY_CHANGELOG.md. Check init if you want to use a custom changelog format.
