A conventional changelog for the rest of us
Installation and Requirements
Right now, this package only supports the
clog distribution available for Mac. There are
other distributions available.
Node & npm
This is distributed as an
npm package (some say that stands for "Node Package Manager"). So you must have Node.js (or io.js) and npm installed.
Here are quick instructions on how to get those: http://blog.nodeknockout.com/post/65463770933/how-to-install-node-js-and-npm
Congratulations, you've opened your life to a whole new world of awesome tooling and other cool things :-)
Install this tool via
$ npm install -g clog
In your terminal, simply type
clog --help to get output of the options available.
See the official clog website for documentation on how to use
