gitmoji-changelog

Generate changelog for repositories using gitmoji commits convention.

Prerequisites:

  • use gitmoji for commits convention
  • use semver for versions and tags convention

Quick start

npm install -g gitmoji-changelog

cd my-project

gitmoji-changelog

If CHANGELOG.md file doesn't exist, it will generate all previous changelog based on semver tags of your repo.

If CHANGELOG.md file already exists, this will not overwrite any previous changelog, it will generate a changelog based on commits since the last semver tag that match.

All available commands and parameters can be listed using: gitmoji-changelog --help

Here an example output: CHANGELOG.md

Workflow

Here the recommended workflow to generate your changelog file using gitmoji-changelog:

Important: Before generating, be sure to have all tags locally (e.g. git fetch origin)

  1. Make changes and commit: git commit -m ":sparkles: my awesome feature"
  2. Bump version (ex: 1.0.0) in package.json using semver convention
  3. Run gitmoji-changelog, then the file CHANGELOG.md is created or updated with all changes
  4. You can freely edit the new release in the changelog file, it will not be overwrite with the next generation
  5. Commit package.json and CHANGELOG.md file
  6. Tag your release: git tag -a v1.0.0 -m "v1.0.0" (or create a Github release)
  7. Push to the remote git push

Customize your changelog

By default when you generate your changelog with gitmoji-changelog, the following mapping is used to group commits :

groupMapping.js.

// TODO: How to override the default mapping with it's own.

node [path-to-gitmoji-changelog-folder]/packages/gitmoji-changelog-cli/src/index.js

Execute tests:

We are using jest to manage unit testing.

yarn test
# or
yarn test --watch

Execute linter:

We are using airbnb-base as linter:

yarn lint
