A CLI for semantic releases. Writes a changelog and tags the new version.

Table of contents

Why?

Many projects need versioning. It is always the same: testing, writing the changelog, updating the version, tagging the commit, and finally releasing the new version.

sgr will take care of all of them, so you can focus on the more important stuff: code

Installation

$ npm i -g semantic-git-release-cli

or

$ yarn add global semantic-git-release-cli

Usage

Forget the times when you had to manually write changelogs, update versions, tag commits. Now just type:

$ sgr

or if you already have an alias for sgr, use following instead:

$ semantic-git-release
