Git Release - Create releases with auto generated release message

Online Demo:

Personal Access Token

You will need a personal access token to authenticate with github. How to generate token

Auto-generate Release Message

Using the Auto Generate Release Message field, you can generate release notes based on commit messages. Choose a start and end date, and all commit messages within these date ranges will be used to generate a release message. If no end date is provided, it will use the most recent commit as the end point.

Run Locally

npm install
npm run serve

Pre-fill Form Data

When you are running the app locally, you can provide pre filled values for the form using a dotenv file. For, example, you can pre-fill the access_token inside a .env.development.local file, so you don't have to re-enter it every time, you refresh the page.


IMPORTANT: If you are going to build for production, make sure you remove any sensitive info from your dotenv file, such as the access token. Otherwise webpack will bundle it with your app. For adding variables via for development, use a .env.development.local file. See more about how Vue handles environment variables here:
