This repository houses the source code for sct, the simple changelog tool. It's a tool which allows a changelog to be generated based on version control system commits. We already should be writing good commit messages, so why not go a little farther, write commit messages a little better, and then automatically generate a changelog on demand.
Currently sct only supports projects which are using git and semantic versioning.
Currently there are two main ways you can use sct.
- Via build tool plugin - This is the recommended way to use sct. See https://github.com/bzumhagen/sbt-sct for a plugin for sbt. Maven plugin not currently available.
- Via source / source assembly - If you want to go this route, check out the rest of the steps below.

- Thanks to KeepAChangelog for the formatting inspiration. Sorry I based the project around breaking the rule at the top of your page "Don’t let your friends dump git logs into changelogs."
