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. (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" && 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

"feature" is a commit keyword. Supported keywords are:

	feat      Sample: git commit -am "feat: <your message>"
	feature   Sample: git commit -am "feature: <your message>"
	chore     Sample: git commit -am "chore: <your message>"
