Create a suggested CHANGELOG from your git repos logs

Project Description


Writing CHANGELOGs can be a grueling task but git logs can help you create a suggested CHANGELOG. The intention of this tool is to remove some of the grunt work involved checking diffs to write CHANGELOGs.


Currently this project is not on pip. You could clone this repository and run the command:

python develop


Command line usage:

usage: changelog [-h] -s START [-e END] -v VERSION [-i ISSUE]
                 [-u ISSUE_URL_PREFIX]

Publish suggested CHANGELOG from git commits

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -s START, --start START
                        Enter commit/tag/branch you want CHANGELOG from
  -e END, --end END     Enter commit/tag/branch you want CHANGELOG to. Default
                        value is set to `master` branch
  -v VERSION, --version VERSION
                        Enter new version number for the CHANGELOG
  -i ISSUE, --issue ISSUE
                        Enter issue ID pattern. Should be a regex pattern to
                        look for
  -u ISSUE_URL_PREFIX, --issue-url-prefix ISSUE_URL_PREFIX
                        Enter issue URL prefix. If your issues are on github
                        then it could be<username




Again, this command line tool creates a suggested CHANGELOG. So use it at your discretion. It is advisable to add more information to your CHANGELOG once you have created it through this command line utility. Better advice can be found here.
