node-changes - (Node release)

Get the release changelog right from your terminal!

Whenever Node releases a new version of the framework I want to read the changelog, and then I thought: "Why not make changelogs supernerdy so that I can read the changelog right from my terminal?". And then it happened. I decided to read the GitHub v3 RESTful API and created a CLI tool that lets you read the changelog for your local Node version or for a specific Node version.


npm i -g node-changes


Usage: node-changes [options]

  -c, --current    Get changelog for the local version
  -t, --tag [ver]  Get changelog for the particular release


$ node-changes -t v10.5.0
