  15f928f: Update readme

The information is fetched from the github repo corresponding to the NPM package. Alternatively you can provide github username / repo instead of NPM package name

$ changed-log kensho/ng-describe 0.3.0 0.5.0

For private repos, you can authenticate one time (including 2Factor) by passing commandline option --auth with the command

Edge cases

To find all changes between a module and the latest release use the command

$ changed-log <name> <from> latest
$ changed-log pre-git 1.2.0 latest

You can omit "latest" and just specify name and "from" version

$ changed-log <name> <from>

If you only provide a single version from a folder that contains package.json it will read the 'from' version from the the package.json, assuming you have only provided the 'to' version

$ changed-log <name> <to>
# reads name "from" version in the package.json

If you do not provide any version information, it tries to read 'from' version in the package.json and uses latest for 'to' version

$ changed-log <name>
# shows list of commits between the current version in package.json and latest

Using as a module

You can use changed-log as a module from your application.

var changedLog = require('changed-log');
// exports single function
changedLog(options, reportingOptions);
/*
  options = {
    auth: true | false - ask user to authenticate, optional
    name: <string> - package name OR <github username/repo name> to go directly to Github
    from: <string> - first tag
    to: <string> - second tag
  },
  reportingOptions = {
    details: true | false - prints the full commit message if true, otherwise just first line
  }
*/

The changedLog function returns a promise, resolved after report printing is complete. The promise is resolved with an instance of Report, see src/report.js

Debug

If something is not working, you can see verbose log output, just run the program with DEBUG=changed environment variable set

DEBUG=changed changed-log ...
