changelog for Dart

Its main purpose is to write a <strong></strong> file. You can also set the version of your pubspec.yaml according to the latest git tag. Helps with some "git" related stuff. (Mainly initializing the local repo)

Example output


How to use it

  1. Modify your source
  2. git commit -am "feature: My new, exciting feature"
  3. git tag v0.1.\<increase prev. version\> (e.g. if it was v0.1.0 - set it to v0.1.1)
  4. cl -x (This writes the new and updates the version in pubspec.yaml)
  5. git commit -am "Released v\<your new version\>" && git push && git publish



    pub global activate changelog


    # activate changelog again
    pub global activate changelog


    pub global deactivate changelog

Usage + Workflow

    # your commit with a "keyword"
    git commit -am "feature: This is my new feature"
    git tag 0.0.1 or git tag -am 0.0.1
    # Write and set the version in pubspec.yaml
    changelog -x
    # Push and the changed (version) pubspec.yaml to origin
    git commit -am "Released 0.0.1"
    git push origin master

    # push everything to your repo
    git push origin master
    # push it to pub
    pub publish 

-c - Writes<br> -y - Sets the version in your pubspec.yaml<br> -t - pushes all tags to your repo

Instead of using changelog [options] you can also use `cl options


Usage: changelog [options]
    -h, --help          Shows this message
    -s, --settings      Prints settings
    -c, --changelog     Writes
    -k, --keys          Print CHANGELOG keywords (lables)
    -d, --simulation    Simulation, no write operations
    -y, --yaml          Set version in pubspec.yaml
    -t, --tags          Push tags to origin
    -x, --release       Combines -c -t and -y
    -i, --init          [ your GIT-Repo name ]
    -r, --domain        [ Domain where your repo is ]
    -v, --loglevel      [ info | debug | warning ]
    -a, --account       [ Your account @ GitHub, BitBucket... ]

    Write                                              'changelog -c'
    Set version in pubspec.yaml                                      'changelog -y'
