Use

In this early release Bidla only supports Git and Markdown:

These commands puts by default git, markdown, and CHANGELOG.md or CONTRIBUTORS.md

  • bidla changelog
  • bidla contributors

Bidla changelog is going to ask you for the next tag release name. This happens cause if you tag before generate CHANGELOG then CHANGELOG file not be included in release and if you tag after Bidla can´t read last tag name.

Workflow is:

  1. First commit all changes for release
  2. Generate CHANGELOG and CONTRIBUTORS files with next tag name and commit them
  3. Tag your release
  4. Push your changes to remote

Optional arguments

Bidla accepts three input arguments

  • bidla [vcs] [file] [filename]
